Reasons could include placement exams that don't accurately predict college-level performance, campuses admitting students who are not among the top third of high school graduates, inadequate high school coursework and a lack of financial incentives to improve outcomes, according to the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst's Office.

A quarter-hour later, KCSN fired up "Cinco Minutos Con Vos" (Five Minutes With You)
