Study Group on Excellence in Education--Final Report (Fort Collins, Colorado, March 1984).
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins.
Recommendations of the Colorado State University Study Group on Excellence in Education are presented, based in part on a review of reports issued by commissions, governmental agencies, and other groups. The Study Group sought to identify projects for the university to undertake to cooperate with Colorado public and private schols in the pursuit of educational excellence. The Study Group was composed of representatives of the university, the local school district, and the business community. The foci have been recent assessments of the quality of education in the United States, and possible and feasible measures to enhance the quality of education. The recommendations, which were submitted for consideration by appropriate groups and organizations, fall into six general areas of concern: communications, admission standards, preparation for careers in public education, educational technology, Center of Excellence, and research. A rationale for each of the recommendations is also provided. In addition, suggestions for the university regarding ongoing efforts and academic programs deserving additional emphasis and support from the college are included. A list of the current membership of the Study Group is appended. (SW)
