Get rid of remedial courses. If you don't have the academic skills to get into college, you don't get into college, period! Which might force some institutions of higher learning into bankruptcy. Or, perhaps it might force our secondary school system to improve.

What you are missing is that getting rid of remedial courses would reduce the football team to an 0-10 season every year. And we all know that the football team is the primary purpose of any large university, except those where the basketball team is the primary purpose.

Also, eliminating remedial courses would greatly reduce "diversity" on campus, and "diversity" is far more important than learning.

I agree. I always thought that was the role of a community college, to be a stepping stone to a four year university. Plus it was less money per credit hour.
