Commission Calls for Readiness Reforms, Clear Pathways

Article

SREB’s Community College Commission calls for states to reform college placement, reconsider math and literacy requirements, and carefully monitor students who need developmental (remedial) courses. The Commission report proposes firm guidance along structured pathways where students clearly see entry, exit and re-entry points to continue their education. The recommendations also ask states to commit increased funding and hold community colleges accountable for improving student services and students’ completion of degrees and certificates.
