Lt. Governor holds Q and A with IVCC students

Posted by wlpo on September 27, 2011

Expectations are high when you sit down to take your college entrance exam, but the classes you are placed in can leave you disappointed.

Some IVCC students told Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon Tuesday that they expected to be placed in more challenging classes, but realized that they aren’t as prepared for college as they had thought. They were responding to a question from Simon.   The democrat has been making stops at the states 48 community colleges.

Simon told students she believes that 12th grade should be more challenging so students are better prepared. Simon also said those who are struggling would be more likely to complete college if they got counseling.
