Refocusing Developmental Education
Brothen, Thomas; Wambach, Cathrine A.
Journal of Developmental Education, v36 n2 p34-39 Win 2012
Dissatisfaction with student success has caused a crisis in developmental education. Critics from both inside and outside the field question whether remedial courses really prepare students for future college work or even if they are properly part of the college mission. In this article, we review research and present information that suggests developmental educators should redefine core principles and key concepts to reinvigorate theory and practice in the field.
