P-16 Alignment of Educational Success
Sanchez, Jafeth; Thornton, Bill; Usinger, Janet
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n4 Oct-Dec 2009
This paper focuses on the concept of P-16 alignment of educational systems. At a basic level, evidence of school efforts, improved student achievement, and stakeholder support are necessary for effective accountability. The needs and benefits for stakeholders' understanding of P-16 education are addressed, particularly for educational leaders at the K-12 and post-secondary education levels. The benefits related to positive outcomes, potential difficulties, and common challenges with P-16 alignment are discussed with a particular focus on high school reform. Examples of how states, school systems, or high schools have successfully reformed or implemented alignment processes are recognized. Overall, the paper provides examples, strategic approaches, and recommendations to involve stakeholders at all levels.
