A comparative national study of P-16 initiatives in the United States

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

P-16 initiatives have been adopted at increasing rates by state governments over the last fifteen years. This educational reform effort aims to create a seamless, aligned system where all subparts, preschool through higher education, collaborate and coordinate efforts. Forty-six states have implemented a P-16 program to some extent. However, the depth of these programs varies widely. Underlying this entire movement are discourses of organizational reform, particular the push toward an open organization system. These rationales form the basis of this study.

The organizational framework, open systems theory (e.g., Katz and Kahn 1978, Scott 1992) guides the examinination of statewide P-16 educational policy reform initiatives. In addition to a descriptive analysis comparing state involvement in P-16, the research questions explored include: What are the significant discourses of policy versus legislative documents? How do the discourses change historically? How do the discourses vary by states?

This national comparative study examined statewide P-16 educational policy reform initiatives. Statewide policy is implemented through both legislation and official policy, thus P-16 policy and legislative documents from all fifty states were analyzed. Qualitative policy discourse analysis (Ball 2006), using NVivo 8, is the method for document analysis.

Findings include a state by state guide to P-16 which will be summarized for participants. Important findings also show how the discourses of policy and policy making set the tone for on the gorund policy action.
