The effort to remake remedial courses at community colleges
Katie Hern argues making community college students take remedial courses sets them up for failure, and she proposes a revamp to the system.
California community college system is huge with 2.5 million students, but not all of them are headed down a road to success.
Some are forced to take non-credit remedial classes before they really get started on their degree, and Katie Hern argues that this sets them up for failure.
Hern, co-founder of the California Acceleration Project, joins Take Two to make the case for a system where these same students are thrown into the deep end with harder classes from the get go.
