Does anybody really know anything about educational reform?

We've got basically open enrollment at the community college level.  Students have to take English, reading and math placement tests, but results on those tests only really apply to English, reading and math courses.  So what about the students who enroll in a Western Civ survey courses that has appropriate college-level reading and writing skill levels, while the students possess a sixth-grade reading level and some sub-college writing ability?  What does that mean re the demand for "student success?"
