Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
These standards and objectives provide a new impetus for improving public education by placing emphasis on educational planning. Required by the new Constitution of Virginia, standards for personnel, instructional materials, program, and systemwide planning and management are established in conjunction with rules and regulations for their implementation. These standards and objectives are designed to help each child acquire basic knowledge and competence in fundamental learning skills; acquire skills and knowledge needed for employment or for education beyond high school; acquire a sense of personal worth and dignity; develop attitudes and values that lead to responsible citizenship; develop understanding of one's relationship to his ecological, physical, economic, and social environment; understand and appreciate people of different nationalities and ethnic groups; develop personal habits for continuing physical and mental health; and appreciate beauty as it contributes to daily life. This manual contains suggestions and instructions to help local school districts implement these standards and objectives. (Author/DW)
