Inside City Hall - Remedial Education (3/23/1998)

Featuring Herman Badillo, John Clandra, Sandi Cooper, and Dennis Walcott, this episode of NY1's "Inside City Hall" tackles the topic of remedial education at CUNY. It was originally broadcast on March 23, 1998. The topic received significant attention throughout the 1990s as allies of Mayor Giuliani frequently leveled criticisms at the university's remediation programs and entrance requirements. By the end of 1999, such courses would no longer be offered at CUNY's eleven senior colleges following intense criticism that accompanied the release of a report that labeled CUNY "an Institution Adrift."
