Blueprint for School Transformation: Iowa K-12 Education Reform Study Committee. Final Report.
Iowa State Legislature, Des Moines.
In 1991 a committee was created by Iowa's Legislative Council to study issues related to the reform of Iowa's education system and examine the status and future of education in Iowa. The committee also analyzed nationwide trends and, based on their findings, developed a comprehensive blueprint for school transformation in Iowa. This blueprint constitutes the final report of the Committee and is an intentionally broad-based framework designed to move education in Iowa forward into the 21st century. The committee was separated into three groups: school structures, authority, and accountability; human and technological resources and investments; and student learning and development. The three groups each submitted a vision statement, goals, and objectives. The committee's recomdmendations to the Legislative Council and the General Assembly were that: (1) the General Assembly consider and indicate support for the vision statements, goals, and objectives adopted by the committee; (2) the Legislative Service Bureau draft a school-transformation-enabling bill that would support the vision statements, goals, and objectives; and (3) the state initiate the coordination of a design for a computer for specific use by Iowa's students, their parents, and other learners.
