"The 2009 ACT National Curriculum Survey, Focusing on the Essentials for College and Career Readiness, included data collected from more than 7,500 middle school, high school, college, and college remedial instructors of English, mathematics, reading, and science about the skills being taught at each grade level, and which skills are considered essential for college."

"Important results of the 2009 survey included the fact that high school teachers tend to overstate their students' readiness for college-level reading; that both high school and college instructors believe that readiness for college and readiness for workforce training require comparable skills; and that high school educators report that they reduce academic expectations for non-college-bound students."
