From Roadblock to Gateway: Improving Developmental Education for Student Success

College completion is a priority for federal and state governments as well as for policy makers and funders. Yet many students are not well prepared to succeed in college and are referred into developmental education to take remedial classes. Many of these students will not complete these classes and will not go on to earn a college certificate or degree. This funder’s guide captures themes and lessons from an ongoing body of work that has been supported by a number of funders working to reform developmental education. It examines promising strategies to accelerate students’ progress toward earning degrees and credentials by reforming developmental education and ensuring that more students enter postsecondary institutions prepared to succeed.
