A report on this year’s SAT scores just came in, and it’s not pretty.

The SAT Report on College & Career Readiness shows that after two years of decline, the national SAT scores were flat this year.

For the fifth year in a row, the report shows that fewer than half of the students taking the test got “college ready” scores.

James Montoya, vice president of higher education for the College Board¬†—¬†the group that administers the SAT — joins Here & Now to discuss the findings.
