Freshmen in a learning community at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, NY, moved more quickly through developmental English requirements, took and passed more courses, and earned more credits in their first semester than students in a control group. Two years later, they were also somewhat more likely to be enrolled in college. Researchers plan to do more follow-up to see if this trend continues.  To read the full report from MDRC, the research group that conducted the study, click here.
