America 2000: An Education Strategy. Sourcebook.
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
"America 2000" is a long-term national strategy (not a federal program) designed to accomplish in nine years (by the year 2000) the six national education goals articulated by the President and the state governors at the 1989 "Education Summit" in Charlottesville, Virginia. This national education strategy was presented by the President in a ceremony at the White House on April 18, 1991, and a booklet describing the basic features of the strategy was published at that time (see ED 327 009 for document and an abstract summarizing the strategy). This "Sourcebook" is, in its own words, "a collection of documents that together offer a comprehensive description of America 2000." It contains: (1) remarks by the President at the presentation of the national education strategy (April 18, 1991); (2) the full contents of the original booklet articulating the details of the four parts of the strategy, including a glossary of key terms and "some questions and answers"; (3) the White House fact sheet or press release summarizing the strategy; (4) the six national education goals to be attained by the strategy; and (5) the joint statement by the President and state governors made September 27-28, 1989 at the "Education Summit."
