The National Bureau of Economic Research estimates that approximately half of all undergraduates and 70 percent of community college students take at least one remedial course. Many of these students never move beyond their placement in remediation. Data from the 2006 National Educational Longitudinal Study shows that only a quarter of community college students who take remedial courses graduate within eight years. On August 15, 2013, the College and Career Readiness and Success Center will host a webinar on transforming remedial education to present key principles for transformation, share the growing research base of best practices related to remediation, and highlight promising institution-level practices. Panelists include: Dr. Bruce Vandal, Vice President of Complete College America; Dr. Michelle Hodara, Senior Researcher at Education Northwest; Katie Hern, Chabot College and Director of the California Acceleration Project; and Cynthia D. Liston, Associate Vice President for Policy Research and Special Projects with the North Carolina Community College System.
