Many in Massachusetts are unprepared for college, report finds

A new, wide-ranging report on the status of Massachusetts public higher education shows a system in which droves of students enroll in college, but many ultimately find themselves underprepared for college-level work and drop out.

The report — titled “Time to Lead” and being released Thursday by the state Board of Higher Education as part of its two-year-old Vision Project — is the first comprehensive, public, data-driven comparison with other states that Massachusetts has ever under­taken. It will be updated year to year, and all results will be available to the public on the Internet.
