Shifting state policies related to developmental education threaten to limit innovation at colleges that serve large proportions of minority students, according to a new study from the Southern Education Foundation. For example, 14 states have prohibited or limited remedial courses, or reduced state funding for them at public four-year colleges. Those policies, half of which are on the books in Southern states, have a disproportional impact on minority-serving institutions, according to the study. The foundation called for leaders of minority-serving institutions to better collaborate to help students with developmental needs, and to "unabashedly demand more from state and federal governments and indeed the entire higher education community."
