The P-16 initiative of the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO), which produced the essays in this collection, began in 2000. This initiative has included case studies of P-16 activities in five states and full-day discussions of P-16 issues involving educators and policymakers. These essays articulate what state educational systems can do, and perhaps what they must do, to enable the next generation of U.S. youth to reach their educational goals. Collectively, the essays make the case that success in postsecondary education can become widespread only if the entire educational system is geared toward preparing and enabling students to become successful learners and workers. The essays are: (1) "Early Outreach" (Terese Rainwater and Andrea Venezia); (2) "Curriculum and Assessment Systems" (Janis Somerville and Yun Yi); (3) "High Quality Teaching" (Edward Crowe); (4) "Student Financial Assistance" (David A. Longanecker and Cheryl D. Blanco); and (5) "Data and Accountability Systems" (Hans P. L'Orange and Richard Voorhees). An appendix describes the Pathways to College Network and lists members of the case study teams. (SLD)
