Whereas AB1725 identifies remedial education as a priority, and
Whereas increasing numbers of students in the California Community College require pre-collegiate basic education, and
Whereas there is not a basic skills discipline listed on the Disciplines List, and
Whereas there is widespread disagreement about the creation of a basic skills discipline,
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges establish an ad-hoc committee, to include instructors in both credit and noncredit pre-collegiate basic skills and transfer level courses, to study the issue of whether or not to create a pre-collegiate basic skills discipline, and
Resolved that this committee hold a series of widely publicized meetings at locations around the State to elicit response from concerned faculty.
