Improving Student Success

The Nebraska P-16 Initiative (also known as "Nebraska P-16") is one of some 40 state programs nationwide that aim to improve success for students from preschool through college. Thirty one Nebraska organizations in business, government and education have formed a coalition to accomplish this goal, recognizing that an improved educational level for Nebraska's citizens will increase the state's economic competitiveness. In addition the students themselves will realize many benefits, including better standards of living and quality of life. Leadership for the Nebraska P-16 Initiative is provided by Governor Dave Heineman as chair and co-chairs: Senator Kate Sullivan, Chair of the Nebraska Legislature's Education Committee; Matt Blomstedt, Commissioner of Education; Liz Koop, President and CEO of the EducationQuest Foundation; and Dr. James Linder, Interim President of the University of Nebraska.
