A major barrier to postsecondary persistence and completion is remedial education, and many Illinois high school graduates require remedial courses in math. The Postseondary and Workforce Readiness (PWR) Act includes provisions for evaluating students’ math proficiency during junior year. Students who are shown ready can decide whether they want to take a math course during senior year. Students who aren’t ready can choose from three types of transitional math courses for 12th grade and the content of each course corresponds to the student’s career pathway of interest.
