A Report to the Idaho State Board of Education from the Commission on Excellence in Education.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
Because an excellent education depends on a balanced program of academics and activities, the Idaho Commission on Excellence recommends changes in 17 areas, including proficiency tests for all sixth and eighth graders and core course requirements for high school graduation. Administrators should complete 6 hours of graduate work every 5 years, and state board entrance requirements for four-year colleges should replace present open admission policies. All districts should maintain special education programs for both gifted and handicapped, as well as expand vocational offerings. Additionally, state curriculum guides should be used for developing local guides ensuring comprehensive and uniform education for all students. A series of appendixes cover research findings, academic competencies, revised graduation requirements, and an after-graduation flow chart and national survey. (KS)
