Less remedial instruction is the goal

In the Hollywood version of college life, students might arrive on a leafy campus to read Dostoyevsky and use differential equations. In the California State University system, which accepts the top third of high school graduates, most freshmen have to take basic composition courses or review algebra in classes that don't count toward a degree.

%age of kids needing remedial work first year in CA colleges high; several proposals noted, particularly geared to fixing problem in K-12. Yet, no mention of putting in quality teachers, curriculum, etc. to end social promotion and grade inflation.
