A Plan for Action. A Follow-up to the Position Paper "The Present Opportunity in Education."
Triangle Coalition for Science and Technology Education, College Park, MD.
Policy documents in the past have called for a science education policy which specifically targets major areas of identified need. This document details three recommendations specifically emphasizing programs which do not require significant new funds. These include: (1) "Federal Leadership: Using the 'Bully Pulpit'," which suggests priorities for the White House and the Department of Education; (2) "Massive Reform of Curriculum Content and Delivery," which suggests programs for the National Science Foundation and others; and (3) "More and Better Science and Technology Teachers," which provides suggestions at the federal, state, and local levels. A table detailing the suggested allocation of federal funds for the years 1990 through 1993 is included. (CW)
