I don’t think you can call it remediation anymore when 1/3 of your students require it. At some point the problem is not the students or the high schools, but that we’ve built a higher education system based on false assumptions about who our students are and what they have when they get here.

Our failure isn’t that the students need to be remediated. Our failure is our misaligned priorities require that we call it “remediation”.
