Document Number: 11390The Condition of College & Career Readiness 2013: Linguistically Diverse Students - Looking at the 2013 career-and-college readiness status of linguistically diverse high school students, ACT found 45 percent did not meet any of ACT's benchmarks. That's compared to 31 percent of all high school graduates. Results point to the need for special attention, including out-of-school support on Saturdays, during summer and after school.
