Missourians Prepared--Success for Every Student. Recommendations for Improving Missouri's Public Schools during the 1990s.
Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City.
Emphasizing outcome-oriented planning and management, innovation, and flexibility, this document discusses the renewal needed in Missouri public education in the 1990s and offers suggestions for educational change. Four major recommendations are presented that include creating a performance-oriented system; increasing prevention efforts; providing more time for learning; and shifting from "the Carnegie Unit" as the primary organizing factor in schools. Strategies for change, initiatives recommended by the State Board of Education, and goals for the 1990s are described for each of four areas of concern: (1) curriculum and instruction; (2) equity and opportunity; (3) teachers and training; and (4) funding and support.
