Improving Student Achievement and Citizenship: National Education Goal 3 and Students with Disabilities. Brief Report 4.
National Center on Educational Outcomes, Minneapolis, MN.
This brief report cites the grade of "poor" given to the United States educational system on the third of the six National Education Goals proposed by the President and the Governors in 1990 of demonstrating student competency in key subject areas and preparing students for responsible citizenship. Results on math competency tests as well as indicators of responsible citizenship are called "sobering" in the first report on the goals. The report then considers this goal in relation to students with disabilities, through brief discussions of student performance in key academic areas, student involvement in activities that promote good citizenship, student competence in languages and knowledge of the world community, methods of monitoring the achievement and citizenship of students with disabilities, and information still needed in this area.
