State Steps toward Educational Improvements. Informational Bulletin 84-IB-3.
This bulletin highlights state initiatives addressing education problems, examines new laws, updates the state of Wisconsin's activities to improve the quality of its education, and concludes with an annotated list of nine publications on educational reform that are available from the Wisconsin Legislative Reference Bureau. Information is included on: (1) educational changes in selected states (Arkansas, California, Florida, Tennessee, and New York); (2) authorization and appointment of education task forces in the states; (3) recent curriculum improvements in the states; (4) recent changes affecting teacher quality in the states; and (5) legislative actions and task forces created by the Wisconsin legislature in 1983. Focus in the report on Wisconsin is on the enactment of two laws: one mandating graduation credit requirements, the other on public school curriculum requirements. (JD)
