No One To Waste: A Report to Public Decision-Makers and Community College Leaders MS Word - Written by a long-time advocate for the underprepared student, No One To Waste argues that remedial education should be a higher priority not only because it is inseparable from the philosophy of access, but also because the nation cannot afford to lose potential workers. The study found that students who are successfully remediated become productively employed. Almost 16% become professionals; 53.7% obtain mid-level, white-collar or technical positions; 19.8% become high-skill, blue-collar workers; and only 9.2% remain in unskilled or in low-skill jobs. The report, which also includes findings and recommendations, is not available online but can be ordered from the American Association of Community Colleges, One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 410, Washington, DC 20036, 202-728-0200.
