AB 1705 by Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin will be heard in the Senate Education Committee on Wednesday, June 22nd at 9:00 am and we need your support!
AB 1705 (Irwin) aims to remove barriers to certificate and degree completion by ending lengthy remedial sequences and placing students directly into transfer-level English and math coursework that is appropriate to their pathway, while also coupling these courses with co-requisite supports, as needed, to enable student success. This is a critical lever in meeting the education and workforce goals of the state. (Factsheet)
