Remedial College

Remedial College

This photo taken March 12, 2014, shows a student's glasses sitting on a notebook containing math exercises in a remedial mathematics course at Baltimore City Community College in Baltimore. Only about a quarter of students nationally who take developmental _ or remedial _ classes ever graduate. The problem is so profound that the advocacy group Complete College America dubs remedial classes the “bridge to nowhere.” The challenge, educators say, is that even as billions is spent annually on remedial classes, many of these students run out of financial aid before they can complete their credit requirements, get discouraged by non-credit classes or find themselves unable to complete them. The Baltimore school is one of several places around the country looking to improve the odds for these students. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)
