MSG Awarded Contract for Supporting Student Success in Community Colleges

Manhattan Strategy Group (MSG) was awarded an U.S. Department of Education for Supporting Student Success through Adult Education and Remedial Reform in Community Colleges contract. MSG is tasked with validating best practices across the country in the adult education and community college systems that either alleviate the need for remedial education or that move students quicker and more successfully through those programs. Most students who enter college needing remedial education do not persist and take up to 8 years to obtain a degree. This hurts the economic status of our country and costs higher education systems an unreasonable amount of money. MSG will not only help to identify and validate practices that are working, but will then create products and deliver technical assistance to replicate and scale these practices.
