What is remedial education?

Remedial education is also know too many as development education and it is vital for students that are falling behind in core academic areas.  

 

Remedial education is not the same as special education.  Remedial education is instruction provided to students who need more support in core areas such as reading writing and mathematics.  

 

These students qualify for remediation because of their poor performance in those areas not because they are intellectually not able to perform.
