(Yahoo!News) The annual SAT scores have been released to the public and show a continued decline in math and writing scores.

Even worse, as CBS’s Money Watch reports, more than half of incoming college freshmen are not ready for the academic challenges of college.

“We must dramatically increase the number of students in K-12 who are prepared for college and careers,” College Board President David Coleman said in a statement. “Only by transforming the daily work that students do can we achieve excellence and equity.”

In the data released by the College Board, a full 57 percent of graduating seniors aren’t ready to transition to college coursework, based on SAT results.
