High Flyers: Policies and Strategies that Boost Developmental Education Success in Florida's Community Colleges

This study opens with a brief on Florida's developmental education policies, as seen from the perspective of state administrators, college leaders and college staff. The policy brief is supported by case studies on the practices of three community colleges in Florida that were particularly successful in serving students in need of developmental math, compared to other colleges in the state during the years 2002 to 2008. The brief analyzes how those colleges' strategies and practices interact with state policy. The study includes a tool for states to consider whether their developmental education policies support their institutions in the same way that Florida's policies do.
