Explaining To Colleges Why Johnny Can't Add

I forwarded Mr. AP's last memo here and here to the supervisors in both colleges I work in.  I thought they should see first hand why the kids come in knowing nothing.

Supervisor I saw nothing wrong with kids getting 80's until I forwarded him the regents conversion chart.  His comment: 
geez ... now I see ...
When we spoke today he was appalled at the percentage of the exams that were multiple choice.  He said, not me, that kids can figure out the answers without knowing any math.
