Preparing for Idaho's Future: An Action Plan for Education in the 21st Century: Summary.
Berman, Paul; And Others
This report represents the shared vision of several hundred Idahoans of what Idaho's schools can become--not only what education can become in an ideal sense, but also what schools need to do to provide the young people of Idaho with the skills, abilities, and knowledge they will need to be fulfilled individuals, able workers, and fully functioning citizens. The report contains two sections. The first section, "What Idahoans Say About...," presents a consensus view of the state's citizens on four areas: future student needs, strengths to build on, priority areas for improvement, and a vision for Idaho education. The second section, "Getting From Here to There," contains the goals for reform of the Idaho education system. These goals are to enable all children to be ready for school; to shift to a performance-based system; to redesign curriculum and modernize teaching; and to build a capability for excellence. (DB)
