Remedial classes have got to go.
Remedial classes are not just a necessary evil to be accepted when it comes to higher education, but a dangerous trap that can shatter students dream of earning their diploma. Many who cannot avoid remedial classes are likely to never advance further in their education. Being forced to take remedial classes for no credit while also balancing other classes is incredibly demoralizing.
Many students leave high school unprepared for the rigors of college education, and it is up to those colleges to prepare incoming students for higher-level material.
