Community Colleges and the Developmental Mathematics Crisis

2015, Master of Mathematical Sciences, Ohio State University, Mathematics.
Community colleges play an essential role in the American educational system. Millions of students attend two-year schools to earn college credit towards a degree or certification. Those who choose these schools come from all backgrounds, and the majority of students is deemed not ready for college-level courses and, therefore, referred to developmental courses. There is a problem with the developmental course sequence, however, because most students never make it through to take for-credit courses. This paper looks at ways to address these issues to improve the system and increase the number of students leaving college with degrees.
