More kids ready for college? Elgin Community College calls it a process & trend

Interesting story --Rock Valley College has  some very different views in regards to students from Rockford public schools.  Could some of ECC’s approaches be of value to RVC?

They said that 65.7 percent of students in ECC District 509 are testing at a college level in writing skills, a 9 percentage point improvement since 2006.

The main reason for this improvement, they say, is that the college is communicating more clearly to high school staff what it expects out of students.
