Reviews

"The State of Developmental Education provides incisive analysis of this controversial, contentious, and sometimes confusing field. Through their groundbreaking work, Parker, Sterk Barrett, and Bustillos carefully examine the often unexplored role of policy with developmental education implementation in five states. The authors raise the conversation from the level of the classroom to that of the statehouse. Interviews with one hundred policymakers in these states reveal the current peril and potential future for developmental education." - David Arendale, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota, USA, and former president of the National Association for Developmental Education
