Vision 21: An Action Plan for the 21st Century.
Cleveland Public Schools, OH.
VISION 21 uses community and staff input and the most current thought on reform in education to create the schools Cleveland wants. The full implementation of its plans will result in a quality education for all the city's children. This document provides the framework within which VISION 21 was developed, the planning process used in its creation, and the implications of the plan for desegregation in Cleveland. The vision includes: (1) a comprehensive core that addresses the educational foundation for all students by outlining the steps required to "raise the floor"; (2) enhancements to this core designed primarily to provide equitable learning opportunities for African American students but benefiting all; and (3) parental choice, a new system of dramatically improved magnet schools, and other community school choices. To establish priorities to meet the most pressing needs first, six initiatives for change are identified and action steps for their implementation are spelled out. Appendixes describe the correlation of the plan with other reform initiatives, give models, and list work teams and coordinating committee members. Five charts illustrate the discussion. (SLD)
