Diplomas Count 2008: School to College. Can State P-16 Councils Ease the Transition?
Education Week, v27 n40 Jun 2008
This year's edition of "Diplomas Count"--a report by "Education Week" and the Editorial Projects in Education Research Center--examines the status of state P-16 councils and whether they can help smooth the road for young people on their way to productive work and citizenship. It also includes graduation rates by U.S. congressional district so that federal lawmakers who craft and monitor such policies can better understand their importance. This special issue of "Education Week" includes the following articles: (1) P-16 Councils Bring All Tiers of Education to the Table (Scott J. Cech); (2) Arizona Council Carves Out Solid Niche in Rocky Ground (Michele McNeil); (3) For Kentucky's P-16 Council, Quiet Influence Proves Best (Alyson Klein); (4) Rhode Island Governor Drives Agenda, Raising Questions About Sustainability (Scott J. Cech); (5) State Councils Vary in Form and Focus (Amy M. Hightower); (6) Setting a P-16 Agenda (Jan Kettlewell); (7) Righting a Troublesome "Disjuncture" (Patrick M. Callan and Michael W. Kirst); (8) The "Three A's" of Successful P-16 Reform (Jennifer Dounay); (9) States Notch Slow, Steady Progress Toward Consistent Graduation Goals (Sterling C. Lloyd); and (10) Sources and Notes.
