This monograph, the third in a series of documents dealing with educational accountability, contains a compilation and an analysis of goal statements available from State departments of education on the direction of public education in America as reflected in State goals. Learner outcome goals are classified under the areas of (1) basic skills; (2) cultural appreciation; (3) self-realization; (4) citizenship and political understanding; (5) human relations; (6) economic understanding; (7) physical environment; (8) mental and physical health; (9) creative, constructive, and critical thinking; (10) career education and occupational competence; (11) lifelong learning; and (12) values and ethics. The report also discusses process goals--statements related to educational programs and instructional methods for facilitating the attainment of learner outcome goals and institutional goals--organizational structures, management capabilities and financial support for implementing process and learner outcome goals. Related documents are EA 004 717 and EA 004 719. (Author/JF)
