The Future of Education Policy: An Asian-Pacific/North American Dialogue.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
The Education Commission of the States (ECS) 1994 National Forum and Annual Meeting was used as an opportunity to host a special Asian/Pacific/North American Dialogue conference on education policy. The purpose of this meeting was to discuss how educational practice and innovation in the Asia-Pacific nations could inform education reform and economic-development efforts in the United States. Delegates expressed a common concern about the inability of current education systems to prepare students for a changing world. Almost all countries represented had established national education goals. Other important issues that received discussion included school-to-work transition, higher education, values and character development, teacher quality, and Japanese educational practices. Ten sections summarize current educational trends and practices in the following countries--Australia, Canada, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, the Republic of Korea, the Republic of Singapore, and the United States. Contains a 35-item list of resources grouped by country and an audiotape order form. (LMI)
