Information about the performance of Pennsylvania's public schools in relation to the six national education goals developed by the nation's governors and the Bush Administration at the Charlottesville education summit is provided in this report. Initiatives taken to improve educational quality and plans for further action are described. The first part of the report presents an overview of Pennsylvania education, specifically, data on students, teachers, and state financial support. The second part evaluates the state's progress toward achieving the six national education goals. Each goal is listed along with its subsidiary objectives. Three areas are assessed under each goal: (1) quantitative information that describes Pennsylvania's status relative to the national goals; (2) current efforts under way to address these goals; and (3) future directions being planned or considered. Part 3 identifies the types of actions and roles that families, businesses, and communities are taking. Numerous graphs and tables are included. The appendix presents an overview of Pennsylvania educational governance; it includes an organizational chart and a list of contact individuals and organizations. (LMI)
