Diploma in Hand, Many College-Bound Students Must Backtrack

Oklahoma Watch-1/4/2016

When it comes to college readiness, Oklahoma is a national laggard.

In 2013, about 39 percent of incoming freshmen at state colleges and universities were required to pass at least one remedial course, usually in math, before taking courses in their major, according to the state Regents for Higher Education. That exceeded the national rate of 32 percent. It meant that students had to pay for one or more additional non-credit remedial classes.

What do you think?
