What is P-16?
is the shorthand term for a student-focused,
comprehensive and integrated system that links all
education levels from preschool (P) through
post-secondary. It is a powerful framework for citizens
and policymakers to use to improve teaching and learning
and thus better prepare students for living, learning,
and working in a changing world.
