Florida Colleges Will Eliminate Remedial Classes
Florida’s colleges are changing remedial education requirements that often cause students to abandon their studies, according to a report from the Orlando Sentinel.
The changes are part of a bill approved by lawmakers this year, the goal of which is to allow more students to start earning college credits and begin studying their field of interest earlier.
Almost 200,000 college students had to take remedial courses in math, reading or writing last year. With these changes in place, a large number of students will be able to immediately enroll in college-level classes, regardless of their academic abilities.
