Develop Education Systems that Integrate All Levels
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v82 n7 p38-41 Oct 2007
During the last few years, the development of seamless education systems to promote students' postsecondary success has been discussed by policymakers at the local, state and federal levels as well as reform-minded individuals. Florida, Washington, Iowa, Georgia and California either have statewide integrated systems or are moving quickly toward statewide systems. The successes of these states have led to multiple conversations across the country about creating P-16 education systems that align all education and training sectors from preschool through bachelor's degrees, with some states even looking at integrated systems through the master's and Ph.D. levels. In this article, the author examines the programs created and implemented by Georgia's P-16 Initiative: the P-16 Data and Analysis System and the Quality Learning and Teaching Environments Initiative (QLTE). These data systems follow student outcomes, and help local educators and businesses use data to set collaborative goals for local districts and the business community to ensure that students have exemplary educational and career pathways. The author also takes a closer look at the California Partnership for Achieving Student Success (Cal-PASS), an initiative that collects, analyzes and shares student data in order to track performance and improve student success from elementary school through university.
