A recent Gallup poll revealed that only about one in four adults believe that students who graduate from high school this year are prepared for college or a career, and Lone Star Community College Chancellor Stephen Head agrees. “I really don’t care what your background is, most students are not prepared for college — they’re just not,” Head said to a crowd assembled last month in Washington, D.C. for a Communities In Schools event. “Grades are one thing, but emotionally, they’re just not ready. They need the background of social help behind the scenes … They don’t even know what they don’t know.” “They need job skills,” he added. “We help them with that, but they need to know how to show up on time, how to handle conflict resolution, how to [succeed].”
