H.R.2961: Remedial Education Improvement Act
Author's Summary: "To amend the Higher Education Act of 1965 to improve remedial education programs that train students in the competencies needed to succeed in higher education."
IB's Summary: According to Rep Bobby Scott (VA): “Too many obstacles still stand in the way of students and their ability to complete a higher education program,” said Ranking Member Scott. “The Remedial Education Improvement Act and the Community College Student Success Act will help us identify and fund effective remediation strategies and provide comprehensive student support. These two bills will be particularly helpful for the most under-resourced institutions where many of our low-income students and students of color enroll. Congress must pass both of these bills so that we can enable more students to go to college and complete their degree programs in an affordable way.”
