Report shows Colorado grads needing remedial courses

An annual report by the Colorado Commission for Higher Education says roughly one-third of Colorado students entering college need remedial help in a core subject.

Among Colorado high school graduates who enrolled in two-year colleges in Colorado in fall 2008, about 53 needed remedial help in math, reading or writing. Among those enrolling in four-year Colorado colleges, 19 percent of first-year students needed remedial help in at least one of those subjects.

The report to the Legislature comes as the state embarks on reforms spurred by the Colorado Achievement Plan for Kids, or Cap4K, legislation. The bill, signed by Gov. Bill Ritter, tasks the
state to create public education standards and assessments from preschool through college.
