State Education Leader (Winter 2002), P-16: The Next Great Education Reform MS Word PDF - What a P-16 system does is connect three largely disconnected levels of public education preschool, K-12 and postsecondary. Students who have excelled in elementary or middle school sometimes face a shock when they find they lack the background knowledge or skills needed for high school work. The reason is that the American education system is, in fact, several different systems, all operating on their own.
