Repaving The Road To College-Readiness

December 3rd, 2012

Strategies for Increasing the Success of Mississippi’s College Students in Developmental Education

Developmental education courses offer a route to college-readiness for over 22,000 of community college students across Mississippi each year. However, taking developmental education courses requires additional time and financial resources from students, and as a result, students in remedial courses are particularly at risk of stepping out of school before reaching their educational goals.

Repaving the Road to College-Readiness is MEPC’s first comprehensive report on the delivery of developmental education programs at the state’s community colleges. The report offers examples of effective innovations in remedial programs and national research on best practices for increasing the success of Mississippi’s underprepared college students.
