Linking K — 12 and Higher Education

The National Center and the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL) cosponsor a publication series, "Perspectives in Public Policy: Connecting Higher Education and the Public Schools," to promote public and educational policies designed to strengthen the linkages between higher education and the schools. Effective examples of KŠ16 policy are also highlighted in National CrossTalk and in the National Center's media seminar cosponsored with the Hechinger Institute on Education and the Media.

A New Generation of Public Policy Leaders

Today's environment of demographic, economic and technological change requires that professionals in fields related to higher education have opportunities to engage in public policy. Through the Associates Program, the National Center invites professionals from academia, government agencies, and foundations to participate actively in national policy initiatives.
