A Utah Perspective on the National Education Goals.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.; Utah Office of the Governor, Salt Lake City.
This report is issued to citizens of Utah to inform them on the progress being made in the state toward the national education goals, established in 1989. Because the goals are "cradle to grave" and cover the preschool years and the afterschool years, the information has been compiled by many state agencies. The report devotes a section for each of the six national goals: (1) readiness for school; (2) high school completion; (3) student achievement and citizenship; (4) science and mathematics; (5) adult literacy and lifelong learning; and (6) safe, disciplined, and drug-free schools. Each section features performance and status information and gives examples of current and emerging Utah programs. In its final section, the report deals with specific programs and planning efforts that are important Utah initiatives but address areas beyond the scope of the national goals. The information presented in this report is intended to establish a baseline for determining progress in subsequent years. (RR)
