Title:Remediation: Higher education's bridge to nowhere
Organization:Complete College America
Short Description:The intentions were noble. It was hoped that remediation programs would be an academic bridge from poor high school preparation to college readiness — a grand idea inspired by our commitment to expand access to all who seek a college degree. Sadly, remediation has become instead higher education’s “Bridge to Nowhere.”
Annotation:The intentions were noble. It was hoped that remediation programs would be an academic bridge from poor high school preparation to college readiness — a grand idea inspired by our commitment to expand access to all who seek a college degree. Sadly, remediation has become instead higher education’s “Bridge to Nowhere.” This broken remedial bridge is travelled by some 1.7 million beginning students each year, most of whom will not reach their destination — graduation. It is estimated that states and students spent more than $3 billion on remedial courses last year with very little student success to show for it. While more students must be adequately prepared for college, this current remediation system is broken. The very structure of remediation is engineered for failure.
