Partnerships for Student Success: Policy Connections between Schools and Colleges.
National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, CA.
This paper describes the Partnerships for Student Success study, which will not evaluate programs or polices, but will seek to identify and examine the aspects of inter-level governance and related state policies that contribute to, or detract from, effective and coherent connections between schools and colleges. Partnerships for Student Success will examine in depth the practical governance realities involving K-12 collaboration in four states. A major objective is to raise public consciousness about the growing impact of K-16 issues on public schools and colleges. The project will identify and emphasize the kinds of pragmatic steps that can prove useful for states that look for long-term institutional change. In 2003 and 2004, field research will be conducted in Florida, Georgia, New York, and Oregon. (SLD)
