Education: Kansas Education Reform

Remedial schools in Kansas are failing. Recent reports on remedial programs, designed for students to improve their skills in math, English, and reading before taking college-level courses, show that the programs are ineffective and in need of reform. A Developmental Education report showed that 42% of first time students in two-year colleges and 16% in public, four-year colleges use these remedial programs; while the demand for the programs exists, the effectiveness does not. Officials in the state education system have denounced the remedial programs; reforms of time and energy spent in Kansas education are now more essential than ever.
