Stuck at Square One: The Remedial Education Trap


From American RadioWorks and American Public Media, join us this Sunday for "Stuck at Square One: The Remedial Education Trap."

When students go to college, they expect to be in college classes. But in fact, 4 in 10 students end up in basic math and English, re-learning what they were supposed to learn in high school. The vast majority of them never get a college degree. What's going on? Most people point to failures in the nation's K-12 education system, but this documentary probes deeper, exploring how students are placed into these classes, what skills people really need to be successful in college, and how best to learn those skills.

Join us for this documentary Sunday, September 4 at 7 p.m. on WRVO.

We'll be airing education related programs each Sunday at 7 p.m. through September. Check back for more details. More information about the series we'll be airing is available on the APM website.

Note: Dates listed on APM's site do not reflect when we will be airing each documentary.
