To accomplish the quantum changes needed in higher education,
we need new forms of leadership. In particular, we need to exam-
ine our existing framework of higher education policies to take
down the barriers and provide the direction to allow us to reach
that potential.
Governor Paul E. Patton, Kentucky, Education Commission of
the States, State Education Leader

Kentucky Governor Patton echoes the concerns of many other state policymakers who are calling for the creation of more seamless approaches to public education at all levels. With the growing recognition that 70 percent of all high school graduates go on to some level of postsecondary education, policymakers are deeply concerned about the barriers that stand in the way of students' moving smoothly from high school to college. In a recent poll of legislators conducted by the Education Commission of the States and the National Conference of State Legislatures, 71 percent of the respondents placed a “very high” priority on creating greater K-16 collaboration.

However, because different governance structures typically oversee K-12 and higher education, the creation of such integrated K-16 systems may require external policy leadership at the state level. Governors, legislators, and their staff increasingly are committed to undertaking these efforts
