    IT’S CONTAGIOUS Isabel Lyman linked to an article detailing how Cal State- Long Beach is bringing freshmen up to “proficient” status in math and English. But check out this quote from the chief academic officer:

    The problem, he said, is the students’ lack “of ability to read critical (sic) and with comprehension. It constitutes 90 percent of the failure of students in this area.”

    And, perhaps, the other ten percent is due to chief academic officers who can’t speak English? I’m sure he was misquoted. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
