Why Have We Failed On Remediation?

A whopping 52 percent of students going into two-year colleges need remedial classes when they start, yet nearly 40 percent of community college students fail to complete it. How to support the students that need the most help is among higher education’s biggest conundrums. College is a huge investment for students – and for those who fail or drop out, the debt burden is the harshest. When students withdraw, that’s lost revenue for colleges too. What can colleges do to make remediation actually work? This panel will focus on two new and successful models for remediation that are driving results.
