Meeting the Challenge, 1988-89. Condition of Education in Connecticut: Elementary and Secondary.
Connecticut State Board of Education, Hartford.
The condition of education in Connecticut, especially pertaining to reform efforts initiated from July 1, 1986, to June 30, 1988, is summarized in this biennial report. The document includes indepth discussions of the state's people and economy, teacher and administrator characteristics, student achievements, programs, and school finance. Text, tables, and graphs describe the 2-year period and identify trends within that period and in relation to preceding years. Thus, the report provides both a historical context and a basis for planning. The final section lists indicators of success that were developed to measure progress toward achievement of the state board's educational goals. A special update chapter for the year following implementation (1989) describes the results of the State Board of Education's equal opportunity efforts and the Educational Cost Sharing Grant and changes in three critical areas: the professionalization of teaching; the movement toward quality, integrated education; and school finance.
