The Future of Community Colleges: Reinvesting in Remedial Education Programs
Shared Justice (2014)
  • Roy Y. Chan, Boston College
Abstract
Over the last three decades, white, middle class students have dominated the higher education demographic, but students of non-privileged backgrounds have more recently experienced greater access to post-secondary education through the “open doors” admissions policy (e.g., open enrollment). Though the open enrollment policy has widened access for all students to attend and pursue higher education, community colleges have also been under intense scrutiny for their failure to adapt to the diversity of their student population, often resulting in low transfer rates and high dropout rates.
