Toward Achieving the Goals: Projects of the Partners in the 1991 Urban Education Summit.
Council of the Great City Schools, Washington, DC.
This publication highlights the current activities of participants in the Council of the Great City Schools (CGCS) in their support of national urban education goals. In the fall of 1990, the National Urban Education Task Force, which was appointed by the CGCS, presented sample strategies for achieving the national urban education goals to representatives from over 70 educational associations, foundations, and business organizations. In January 1991, the CGCS held the first National Urban Education Summit (NUES) in Washington (District of Columbia), which was attended by representatives of 72 organizations. During the 1991 NUES, the CGCS carefully constructed national urban education goals based on the six national education goals that were issued by President Bush and the National Governors' Association in 1990. This report organizes the program and institutional descriptions around the CGCS's six national urban education goals for the Year 2000, which focus on the following topics: (1) readiness to learn; (2) increased graduation rates; (3) improved academic achievement; (4) quality multi-ethnic teachers; (5) postsecondary opportunities; and (6) safe and caring school environments. Programs currently in place that are working toward each goal are described, and information on the institution sponsoring each program is provided. A list of the 72 organizations that participated in the 1991 NUES is provided. (JB)
