Swanson, Beverly B.
Questions that the general public may have about the six national educational goals formulated by President Bush and the U.S. state governors in 1990 and the administration's plan for educational reform are addressed in this digest. Ten questions and brief answers are presented in the following areas: defining the goals; the attainability, priorities and funding of the goals; national testing; school choice; teacher quality; community role; mathematics and science excellence; and emphasis on citizenship. Achieving the national goals depends upon public recognition of their importance and sustained collaborative effort. (7 references) (LMI)
