California State Legislature, Sacramento. Joint Committee on Educational Goals and Evaluation.
This report of the Joint Committee on Educational Goals and Evaluation to the California Legislature discusses the need for educational goals and evaluation, the committee investigation, and the collection of information. As a result of the investigation, it was concluded that: (1) it is essential that the goal-setting process include the extensive involvement of the public with students and educators at the level of the local educational agency; (2) the support of the public for such goals is essential; (3) the value of setting goals is as much in the process of participation as in the final outcome; (4) as learning is recognized as being dynamic and individualistic, any objectives of education that are established should not become too specific or too restrictive as to stultify the learning process; (5) the flexibility and freedom granted to school districts by the enactment of the George Miller, Jr., Education Act of 1968 should not be impaired by the adoption of statewide goals of education; (6) to ensure that the goals and objectives of public education continue to be appropriate and relevant, a recycling process should be designed; (8) an assessment of needs, relevant to the present and long-range future of public education, should be accomplished during the goal-setting process; (9) the involvement of the legislature in the establishment of educational goals and objectives for California public schools would provide a necessary linkage between the public and those responsible for educational policy; and (10) an assessment and evaluation program should be comprehensive and explicit.
