BILL CRAWFORD: Legislators should take hard look at admissions



Speaker of the House Philip Gunn led a panel of lawmakers discussing the high costs of education in Mississippi to focus in on “the $35 million colleges and universities spend annually on remediation for students that need extra help once they get to college,” reported Mississippi Today.

Enrolling under-prepared students impacts graduation rates. IHL data shows the average six-year graduation rate for Mississippi public universities is 50 percent.

The above information suggests our high schools are doing a poor job preparing students for university level work, we let far too many under-prepared students into our universities and we’re having to hustle out-of-state students to keep our universities filled up.
