My blog discusses the important and complex subjects of college completion, college success, student risk factors (for failing), college readiness, and academic preparation. I will explore the pieces of the college puzzle that heavily influence, if not determine, college success rates.
New Report On College Remediation Has New Facts
Diploma to Nowhere published by Strong American Schools
has some fascinating new remediation data. 4 out of 5 high school students who enrolled in college remediation had a high school grade point average of 3.0 or higher. 95% said they did all or most of their high school work that was asked of them.80% thought they were ready for college when they graduated from high school. The cost of remediation for each student is estimated at $2,000 for two year and $2,531 for 4 year public colleges- these are the high range estimates , but seem low to me.
