According to data released by Fresno Unified, only 2 percent of its students are considered college ready. The data comes from the latest results from the Early Assessment Program and shows an apparent decline from 2011, when Fresno Unified had 11 percent ready for college English and only 4 percent ready for math. Fresno Unified officials say the alarmingly low number is skewed because this is the first year the Common Core standards are a factor.
