The Annual Condition of Education Report. A Report on Elementary, Secondary and Community College Education.
Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.
This publication provides a comprehensive view of kindergarten through community-college education in Iowa. It describes input indicators (which are somewhat fixed by outside constraints), process indicators (over which school districts have some control), and outcome indicators (which result from planned district programs). Information for 1993-94 is compared with the 1985-86 school year. Statewide initiatives implemented since 1985 include the Department of Education's 5-year plan, Renewing the Commitment; new standards for school accreditation; the Educational Excellence Program to improve teacher salaries and staff development; and increased exploration of interdistrict sharing. The first section describes Iowa's progress toward the six National Education Goals. The second section describes the status of elementary-secondary education in terms of student achievement, enrollment, staff, programs, and finance. Section 3 examines community colleges, and provides information on major initiatives, learner outcomes, enrollment, and programs. The last section offers an overview of major initiatives to ensure quality and expand educational opportunities. A total of 86 tables and 27 figures are included. (LMI)
