The Daily News reports on a disturbing CUNY report: "During their first math class at one of CUNY's four-year colleges, 90% of 200 students tested couldn't solve a simple algebra problem...Only a third could convert a fraction into a decimal. The lack of math skills means the CUNY students - nearly 70% of which come from city schools - could struggle to keep up with peers, fail classes or even drop out, the professors charged." City College Professor Stanley Ocken said, "These results are shocking. They show that a disturbing proportion of New York City high school graduates lack basic skills."
