California state legislators have recently discovered the high cost to the taxpayers of the remedial education courses given at the state universities. Last year, 60% of new students needed remedial help.
California legislators assert that students have been the victims of consumer fraud perpetrated on them by the high schools which gave them high grades. The legislators say they want to send the invoice for the cost of the remedial courses to the high schools that deceived their students by giving them a 3.8 or higher grade-point average.
