Cal State Universities "Overwhelmed" By Remedial Needs

The remedial numbers are shocking, given that the Cal State system admits only freshmen who graduated in the top one-third of their high-school class. About 27,300 freshmen in the 2010 entering class of about 42,700 needed remedial work in math, English or both.
Moving forward, the Cal States will require Early Start courses, so the university is trying, in part, to cut down the number of students kicked out for failing to complete remedial classes their first year.
