PARTNERING FOR PROGRESS:

The Role of Early Remediation in Preparing College-Ready Arkansas Students


The Arkansas General Assembly recently established the Council on Postsecondary Education and Career Readiness which is tasked with making state recommendations to the legislature for improving the collaboration between K-12 and higher education to remediate students before they graduate from high school. The Council recently had its first meeting of K-12 and higher education leaders in partner with the Southern Education Foundation, who filled the room well beyond capacity, to begin to explore best practices from Arkansas and other states. The conference was held Wednesday, Nov. 20, and the presentations are available below:
