RUBY PAYNE, PH. D
 Recent research from Ruby Payne, Ph.D.
supports the need for integrating cultural
adaptation guides for students of remedial
education, allowing them to "leap" across
the continuum of their desire for a
degree while understanding the new
"rules" of college life and learning, which
study skills videos and reinforcement
activities are of particular value.
