Improving College Completion: Scaling Promising Reforms

Too many students begin college but never finish. Many enter unprepared for college-level work and never get beyond developmental courses intended to build the academic skills necessary to master more advanced coursework. Athens Technical College transformed its developmental courses in math and English and is helping more students move ahead toward degrees. This session explores how they did it and examines the latest research into the steps needed to effectively replicate such promising programs.
