Matthews: Cut NIC Remedial Ed

Coeur d’Alene Press interview with Reagan Republican candidate Paul Matthews offers his stand on an important issue:

“He said the college is spending too much on remedial education -- non-credit course work required by students lacking the skills to take college-level classes. This is another indication, he said, of clear direction missing at NIC. ‘The governor’s workforce training initiative calls for Idaho to cut remedial education in half, and yet, our capital improvement plan calls for NIC to become a remedial education center,’ Matthews said.” More here.

Question: Do you think remedial education is an important educational function provided at North Idaho College?
