Title:Improving high-school-to-college transition through leadership and governance
Organization:National Governors Association
Short Description:Governors are united in their commitment to improve America’s high schools. Nationwide, only 71 percent of students graduate from high school, and only 18 percent of high school freshmen go on to complete a college degree on time. Deficits in basic skills cost colleges, businesses, and underprepared high school graduates as much as $16 billion annually in lost productivity and remedial costs.
Annotation:Governors are united in their commitment to improve America’s high schools. Nationwide, only 71 percent of students graduate from high school, and only 18 percent of high school freshmen go on to complete a college degree on time. Deficits in basic skills cost colleges, businesses, and underprepared high school graduates as much as $16 billion annually in lost productivity and remedial costs. One of the Action Agenda’s recommendations is to improve statewide education leadership and governance. Currently, statewide education governance is fragmented. In almost every state, state boards and agencies for K–12 and postsecondary education operate independently and are not held accountable for common goals or education outcomes. Most states also lack a way to coordinate policies for high schools with those for public two- and four-year postsecondary institutions. Consequently, high school students, their parents, and educators receive conflicting and vague messages about what students need to know and be able to do to transition to the next education level.
