P-20 Education Policy: School to College Transition Policy in Washington State - This study examines Washington state's attempt to move toward an integrated P-20 system of education that enhances student transitions from high school to college. The study found that Washington has many key programs in place to enhance student transitions between the K-12 system and the higher education but the state's current approach lacks coherence and cohesion. This study also found that the state has developed a new and innovative model with the potential to solve many transition-related issues, but it will require assessment to determine its actual effectiveness.
