Student Often Repeating Classes At Macomb CC

WARREN, Mich. (AP) -- State auditors say they discovered another Michigan community college allowing students to repeat classes over and over.
Auditors say allowing students at Warren-based Macomb Community College to repeatedly take the same class isn't a good use of tax dollars. They found 549 students took the same class four or more times over a two-year period. Many were algebra classes. One student took algebra eight times.
Taking a class more than three times at Macomb Community College requires approval from a dean, adviser or counselor. State auditors didn't always find appropriate rationale for classes to be repeated.
In response, the school says it will make students aware of services to help them succeed. Auditors in December found a similar trend at Monroe County Community College.

    Makes you wonder about how well the instructors can teach the subject to begin with. Obviously the students want to pass the class; otherwise they wouldn't keep taking it. When I was in college I had trouble with a statistics class; so I drove home every weekend to have my brother tutor me. The prof was either on the wrong chapter or asking the students with assistance in figuring out the example he was giving which made me believe he didn't really understand the subject; let alone teach it.
