Hawaii college-bound senior rate nearly unchanged

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) A report tracking Hawaii high school seniors says the number bound for college remained flat last year.

The Department of Education's annual college and career readiness indicators report was released Tuesday.

The report says 54 percent of Hawaii's 2013 public school graduates enrolled in two- and four-year colleges in the fall. That's up 1 percent from 2012 graduates. The national average is 62 percent.

Nearly 38 percent of the 2013 graduates enrolled at a University of Hawaii campus and one in three needed remedial courses to prepare for college-level courses.

The report says 32 percent had to take remedial math, down from 36 percent the previous year.

Thirty-one percent enrolling at UH had to take a remedial English course, the same level as the previous year.
