New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has built quite a legacy for himself cracking down on soda, salt and, just the other day, loud ear buds.
Nevertheless, as CBS New York reports, Bloomberg might want to spare a few minutes to focus on this shocking statistic:
Almost 80 percent of all New York City high school graduates who want to enroll in the City Universityís
community college system must first relearn basic reading, writing and math.
All told, approximately 11,000 would-be students are required to take remedial courses each year.
