May 3, 2022 – Jetaun Stevens, senior staff attorney with Public Advocates was quoted in The Black Chronicle in a story about California’s community colleges still devoting substantial resources to remedial math, despite evidence and AB 705.
“California’s community colleges have continued to devote substantial resources to remedial math, despite evidence that these classes do not meet the AB 705 standard of maximizing student completion,” said Jetaun Stevens, Senior Staff Attorney with Public Advocates. “This is especially true at colleges with over 2,000 Black students. Enrolling students in remedial courses drives racial inequity.”
