3-19-15 remedial classes

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Assembly has passed a Republican bill that would require the University of Wisconsin System to complete a report tracking the origin high schools of students taking remedial courses.  The measure would require the system to determine the high schools with more than six students who must take remedial English and math courses at a UW school. The system would have to submit a report to lawmakers and the state Department of Public Instruction, which would forward the document on to school boards.  The bill’s author, Rep. John Jagler, says he hopes the report will spark questions about why students at those high schools aren’t ready for college.  The measure passed on a voice vote Tuesday. It goes next to the state Senate.
