Defining a Standard Education for Oregon Students.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
Periodically, over a period of 20 years, the state of Oregon has drafted and discarded various definitions of basic education. As a result of House Bill 2132, the Oregon State Board of Education responded to the call to define by rule a basic education program to be available to all elementary and secondary students in public schools. This report defines basic (standard) education, recommends those services required to support basic (standard) education, and provides estimated costs for the above. Six sections comprise this report. The first is an introduction that gives the events leading to the report, the changes from basic education to standard education for Oregon students, the procedure to develop definition, and the executive summary. Section 2 details the definition of a standard education for Oregon students. It includes common curriculum goals, vocational-technical education, mandated federal and state programs, character education, student activities, international understanding, and necessary support services. Section 3 elaborates on a conceptual approach to fund a standard education for Oregon students. The fourth section describes the implementation of a statewide system of accountability on the assessment of programs and the verification of standardization. Section 5 details observations and recommendations, and section 6 gives a summary, bibliography, and appendices. (41 references) (RR)
