The high degree of remedial work that students take in college is evidence of failure of the education system, and higher education leaders and policy makers must undertake a much more systematic effort to solve the problem, the Education Commission of the States argues in a new report. The paper, "Getting Past Go: Rebuilding the Remedial Education Bridge to College Success," helps begin a larger effort by the group to build a cohesive policy within and among states to build what are now often narrowly framed programs and innovations into wide-scale reforms. “We can no longer rely on incremental, institutionally based changes to remedial instruction, but instead must use policy to develop state and postsecondary system strategies that can be implemented, evaluated and continuously improved,” said Bruce Vandal, director of Postsecondary Education and Workforce Development at ECS.
