West Virginia reforms found to be successful

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin of West Virginia recently authored a guest column in the Logan Banner.  In the piece, Governor Tomblin details dev ed reforms undertaken by the West Virginia Community and Technical College System to meet the growing projected need for a credentialed workforce.  A million-dollar grant from Complete College America enabled reforms via co-requisite courses in two-year colleges across the state. Prior to implementation of the co-requisite model, only 14% of students passed college-level math within two years of taking developmental math.  Under the new model, however, 62% of students now complete college-level math within one semester.
