More than one-third of all first-year college students take some type of remedial course work and for historically underserved students, this number can be much higher. While remedial education strives to help students attain the skills they need to succeed in college, it also can deter completion by adding to the cost and time necessary to earn a degree. The Promoting Readiness in Education to Prevent Additional Remediation and Expense (PREPARE) Act aims to address this issue by more closely aligning high school education with the expectations of postsecondary education.
