National Education Association, Washington, DC.
A brief summary is given of the rationale for each of the six National Education Goals announced by President Bush and the nation's governors in February 1990, and measures to meet each goal are proposed. To meet goal 1, readiness for school, measures related to the following issues are included: prenatal care, parent education, health care, and home to school transition. For goal 2, school completion, measures include: early intervention, remedial education, dropout prevention and reentry programs, and community involvement. To meet goal 3, student achievement and citizenship, measures include: accountability of student, school employees, schools, communities, and parents; shared decision making; and international education. Some measures proposed to meet goal 4, science and mathematics achievement, relate to: school personnel, professional development, curriculum, and access. Measures for goal 5, adult literacy and lifelong learning, include: school-to-work transition, adult literacy programs, vocational-technical education, postsecondary student assistance, and educating for democracy. To meet the final goal--safe, disciplined, and drug-free schools--the proposed measures include: community involvement, drug education, referral and treatment, and government and community action to reduce violence in schools.
