4 in 10 Ohio High School Grads Not College-Ready

The latest state data show four in 10 Ohio high school graduates need at least one remedial English, math or science course when they get to college. Gov. John Kasich wants to shrink that number, so state higher education
officials are working to set new statewide college readiness standards.

The budget Kasich signed last year gave institutions until the end of 2012 to identify the knowledge students need to be prepared for college-level coursework. It requires trustees to adopt the new standards by Dec. 31 and develop tests to go with them.

The Ohio State University wants to encourage students into taking online-only courses.  The Columbus Dispatch reports that the University recently approved a new fee structure that would allow students to save money on the services they will not use.

In-state students who register for these exclusive online classes would be charged $100 a semester, while out of state students will only pay $5 more.
