“Remedial education is getting plenty of attention from state lawmakers. Yet there is little consistency in how states track students’ college preparedness and subsequent progress through remedial coursework.
“That’s the central finding of a new report from the Education Commission of the States. The education policy think tank also released a companion report today that takes a first crack at creating a national ‘framework’ for how to measure and report on remediation.”
Better-developed placement mechanisms (not just ACT) and better tracking sound like great ideas. The “national framework” makes me nervous. What are your thoughts?
