The broken promise of college readiness

In repose to the Alliance for Excellent Education’s report on remediation costs, CNN education contributor Steve Perry talks about the broken promise of college readiness.

“The problem is that these students were given the promise when they were given a diploma that said they were in fact prepared for the next level for whatever the rights and privileges that come with receiving a high school diploma.”

One strategy Perry recommends is to bone up on weak subjects in community college before starting a four-year university.
