There is a "large gap" between how high school teachers perceive their graduating students' readiness for college and what professors expect freshmen to know.

I asked Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Joshua Starr for his view of the school system's "Seven Keys to College Readiness" in response to a post calling for these "keys" to be abandoned. MCPS spokesman Dana Tofig sent a response.

Do the "Seven Keys to College Readiness" that are promoted in Montgomery County Public Schools really make sense?
