Am I Really Ready for College?
In 2011, the American Association of College and Universities reported that 53% of students entering four year colleges and universities are under-prepared for college level academics. Now, the numbers are said to be approaching 75%.
Many factors have contributed to the academic crisis in America - low literacy rates, struggling elementary and secondary schools systems, failed educational policies...and the list goes on. We believe that if a staggering majority of our next generation is lagging academically, college bound or not, our communities and our world suffer as a result.
Kern Institute has joined with educators and community leaders to create new and innovative solutions to help students who may otherwise be left behind. We provide learning strategies skills training to students, as well as educational resources and training for teachers.
Education is truly a door to a better future, and Kern Institute is dedicated to providing students with the foundational skills to achieve.
