Missouri's K-16 Coalition had their inaugrual meeting today in Jefferson City to discuss improvements in the transition from lower to higher education. Farrah Fite has the story from Jefferson City.

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.
