National Governors' Association, Washington, DC.
Designed to help governors assess state and national progress in education, this fourth and final report of a series summarizes what has transpired since 1986 in the following areas of education reform through the recommendations of the seven task forces that were addressed in "Time for Results: The Governors' 1991 Report on Education": (1) school leadership; (2) teaching; (3) parent involvement and choice; (4) readiness; (5) technology; (6) school facilities; and (7) college quality. Each section outlines what states have learned in the reform process, recommendations to ensure continued progress, and specific state actions. Areas examined include the preparation, professional development, evaluation, and licensure of school leaders; the definition of teacher standards and the restructuring of teacher education, careers, compensation, work environments, and incentives; the development of climates, programs, and teacher training to increase parental involvement; and the development of legislation to increase parent choice among public schools. Also examined are recent and recommended improvements in the identification of at-risk students and the development of programs for such students, increased district access, research and development, teacher training, technology in education, the maintenance and use of school facilities, and the quality and funding of higher education institutions.
