Making P-16 Meaningful
A partnership between the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, the Council of Chief State School Officers and the State Higher Education Executive Officers aims to connect higher education leaders with K-12 officials to help the Common Cores Standards Initiative succeed. The focus will be on two key tasks: aligning the standards with college admission and placement requirements and standards; and ensuring that colleges better prepare K-12 teachers who can help their students meet the standards. Common Core has been mostly a k-12 enterprise with subject matter college professors. This is a spur to get the institutional leaders in higher education involved.
