SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A new study says approximately half of the New Mexico students attending the state’s colleges and universities aren’t ready academically and that it’s costly for the state.

The student released by the Legislative Finance Committee says 51 percent of the students needed remedial courses last year and that the cost was $22 million.

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican (https://bit.ly/1cR1WOh ), the study says remediation rates haven’t changed in the past seven years.

Nearly half of the remedial coursework is in math. Most of the rest was in English and reading.
