Remedial Placement and Curricular Reform at California Community Colleges
About the Program
California’s community colleges are in the midst of a major transformation of developmental education. Several colleges have been experimenting with placement and curricular reforms for some time. PPIC researcher Marisol Cuellar Mejia will outline a new report on the efforts of these early implementers and the potential impact of reforms on student outcomes. A panel of experts will then offer a range of perspectives on key aspects of placement and curricular reforms.
This event is supported with funding from the PPIC Corporate Circle and the PPIC Donor Circle. This research was supported with funding from the California Acceleration Project and the Sutton Family Fund.
