2016 State Profiles
The Southern Regional Education Board has long emphasized the need to strengthen students’ readiness to succeed after high school. SREB’s recommendations to improve readiness cover standards,
assessments, transitional courses, postsecondary placement and remedial education. To support states’ efforts, SREB compiled information through interviews of P-16 education agency staff and review of numerous documents to determine state progress as of fall 2016 on the recommendations. These state profiles summarize selected findings for each of the five areas.
