Separate sections are devoted to each of the major objectives: reducing the number of school dropouts, reducing the number of first grade failures, implementing a statewide kindergarten system, improving students' basic verbal and quantitative skills, providing adequate occupational training opportunities, increasing the number of high school graduates in postsecondary education programs, providing adequate educational programs for handicapped students, increasing adult enrollment in basic and secondary educational programs, assuring availability of qualified school personnel, annually assessing educational quality in each school district, and implementing a specified minimum program in each school district. Each section describes in great detail specific subgoals, current activities and achievements, and planned steps toward one of the major objectives on a year-by-year basis from 1971-72 through 1975-76.
