This literally makes me ill. This just goes to prove that you cannot ensure a good education by throwing more money at it as the PSEA would like us to believe. I am sick of hearing that teachers are underpaid when this is the product we get. I have a hard time facing the people in our school district when we are doing such a terrible job educating their children.

Is that why the first year of college has to be spent being taught basic English, math, etc.?

I think your coverage is missing the point. Instead of comparing our region's remediation rate to others, you should be raising alarm at how many high school graduates, both here and elsewhere, are getting diplomas even though they apparently haven't mastered the coursework. We're cheating those kids and ourselves as taxpayers.
