A group of community colleges in Tennessee have been working with local high schools to create math labs for high school students. The math labs are available to high school seniors who appear likely to be in need of remediation in college and are focused on preparing students for college math. Bill Haslam, the state's governor, provided $1.1 million to the project after hearing of its success - 25% of of 200 students at a remedial, dual enrollment group at Chattanooga State Community College had completed a credit-bearing college-level math course while still in high school.
