Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The open-door policy of community colleges, has resulted in a large number of students enrolling with skill deficiencies. One-third of all entering college freshmen are skill-deficient in reading, writing, and mathematics (Plisko & Stern, 1985). These are students who would otherwise not be admitted to a major university or college because of academic deficiencies. They are students characterized as high-risk students. To serve this population can be a difficult task in that a wide diversity exists both in ability and other attributes. Community colleges need to guarantee quality education comparable to other accredited colleges, and at the same time, provide educational opportunities for these students.
