Math Readiness & CMS Students A new study from Queens University of Charlotte shows that public high school graduates' math readiness is declining across the state and in the Charlotte region. We'll talk to the author of the study, school officials and a UNC Charlotte educator who interacts with new students to talk about why so many college freshmen are not only poorly prepared for the rigors of college calculus and higher math, but are testing into remedial math classes. We'll discuss how the problem has gotten so bad, why it's so important and what educators, in both the university setting and public school systems can do to better the situation.
