Pegah Motaleb, San Diego Mesa College

Common barriers such as poverty, domestic violence, drug abuse, and teenage pregnancy prevent students from low socio-economic backgrounds, in our developmental courses, from succeeding. Institutions must implement services beyond EOP, EOPS, PASS, and PUENTE, and replace traditional below-transfer-level sequence of courses with accelerated ones to retain “The Forgotten” students.
