Unprepared for College?

Interesting stats on America's College dropout rate: "Although 80% of students graduating high school think they are ready for college once they have their diplomas, the reality does not reflect this confidence. ...This is not solely an American phenomenon, either; studies suggest that up to half of all college students drop out of college for various reasons before earning a degree. To put it in perspective, China has a 55.8 percent attainment rate, which measures the percentage of students who complete their degrees, compared to Japan’s 53.7 percent; New Zealand’s 47.3 percent; Ireland’s 43.9 percent; and America’s 40 percent."
