Only 37 percent of high school seniors are prepared for college coursework in reading and math, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress.
The results of testing by the group show reading scores have essentially stayed the same since 2013, and math scores are down slightly.
This news comes at a time when high school graduation rates are rising. In 2014, 82 percent of students graduated on time.
