Only 3 percent of adults think students are "very prepared" for college when they graduate from high school, according to a Gallup survey released last week. And 5 percent said they think high school graduates are very prepared to enter the workforce.

Results were consistent across groups by gender, income, ethnicity and level of education, Gallup says. Younger respondents were more likely than older ones to say students were "not at all prepared" for life after high school. The poll is based on a telephone survey of a random sample of 1,500 adults from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
