It’s almost the end of the grading period, and you look around your Algebra I class. Of your 35 students, two are in danger of failing your course with summer break on the horizon.
You ask yourself these questions:
What do you do for these students?
What will they be striving for in the coming weeks?
Would a credit recovery course help these students succeed?
According to a 2018 American Enterprise Institute survey, approximately three of four schools in the U.S. offer credit recovery options. The survey also determined that approximately six percent of U.S. high schoolers are enrolled in some form of credit recovery.
When it comes to credit recovery, experts often disagree about its effectiveness. You’ve likely read the studies that show some programs allow students to skip lessons to avoid answering questions about the more challenging content.
Worse yet, your school may be forced to use a low-cost program that lacks the rigor and effectiveness of a robust credit recovery option.
You care about your students, and you want to set them up for success.
