Dr. Ernest Boyer advocates recognition and reward for quality teachers and identifies developing language skills as the essential purpose of public education. Dr. Carolyn Warner defends free public education and criticizes tuition tax credits. Dr. James Rutherford urges more federal support, better training and pay for teachers, and more attention to instructional matters by administrators who focus more on leadership. Dr. Arthur White discusses the role of educators in preparing children and the public for coming changes. He cites studies on future private financial support to the public sector and future jobs. Dr. Herbert J. Grover examines competency testing; science, math, and technology education; educational finance; teacher competency; university standards; and vocational education. Dr. Richard Rossmiller discusses ways to manage school resources to improve student achievement, including school organization, classroom management, discipline, and time on task. Dr. Dena Stoner stresses vocational education at the secondary level, a component which, despite its importance, is often first to be affected by budget cuts. She urges reauthorization of the Vocational Education Act in 1984, teaching of generic vocational skills, and inclusion of vocational education as part of the regular curriculum of every student.
