State officials joined with educational and business leaders in Jefferson City Wednesday to commence the studies of the K-16 Coalition. The members introduced planned improvements in school requirements to ease the move from high school to college. K-16 Coalition Chair, Dr. Mel George, explained why the group felt mathematics should be the first area they focus their efforts on.
The coalition will meet again on Sept. 7th to finalize their recommendations which will then be released on Oct. 1st. From Jefferson City this is Farrah Fite.
