“The Governance Divide: A Report on a Four-State Study on Improving College Readiness and Success” is posted by the The National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education.

State education leaders need to devise programs to help students make the transition from high school to college, a report by three education research organizations argues.

The study’s authors recommend that states institute K-16 improvements by addressing four policy areas: assessment and curricula, finance, data systems, and accountability. Their conclusions are based on case studies in Florida, Georgia, New York, and Oregon.

Researchers from the Washington-based Institute for Educational Leadership, the San Jose, Calif.-based National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, and the Stanford Institute for Higher Education Research contributed to the report.
