The selections in this book originated at the annual National Educator Awards Retreat held by the Milken Family Foundation in March 1991. To set the stage for the discussions, W. Bennett and A. Levine offered opening remarks concerning characteristics of ideal high school graduates. Educators, including state superintendents, responded. After a preface by L. Milken, the following papers are provided: (1) "The Graduates We Want: Who They Are and How We Get Them" (A. Levine); (2) "What Do We Want Our Graduates To Be Like?" (W. J. Bennett); (3) "Keynoters and Award Recipients: An Open Exchange"; (4) "Superintendents' Views: What Do We Want Our Graduates To Be Like?" (E. Bither, H. Marockie, E. Paslov, and C. Toguchi); (5) "Practitioners' Views: Who Do We Want Our Graduates To Be?" (K. N. Hughes); (6) "The Moral Development of Our Nation's Children: The Role of the Public School" (N. M.

Ellner); (9) "How Should Our Schools Be Structured? A View from the Top of the Bottom of the Heap" (G. C. Hentschke); (10) "How Do We Assess Effective School Processes?" (H.
