Texas Enacts the Largest-Scale Implementation of Corequisite Remediation in the Country

Statement from Complete College America President Tom Sugar on Texas House Bill 2223, which enacts the implementation of Corequisite Support for 75% of remedial students in the state – the largest-scale adoption of the reform to date. The legislation passed unanimously in both the House and Senate and was signed into law this week by Texas Governor Greg Abbott:

“Traditional remediation is a significant barrier to college dreams, but no longer in Texas,” said Complete College America president Tom Sugar. “Governor Abbott, Rep. Giddings, Rep. White and the state’s institutions have taken a bold stand for their students, replacing a broken system of remedial education with a proven strategy that is quadrupling student success in math and English in a quarter of the time. This move will pay huge dividends, and Texas will have many more college graduates because of it.”
