This Spanish translation of the abridged version of "A New Compact for Learning" acknowledges the current U.S. education system's inadequacy to educate U.S. citizenry and introduces New York State's New Compact for Learning, intended as a plan to reorganize New York's own system. The compact's fundamental principles are: (1) recognizing that all children can learn; (2) focusing on results; (3) aiming for excellence; (4) providing the means; (5) providing authority with accountability; and (6) rewarding success and remedying failure. The compact's goals, strategic objectives, and specific roles of the state, the student, the parent, the teacher, the school support team, the principal, the school, the school district, the community, the superintendent of schools, the board of education, the region, higher and continuing education, libraries and other cultural institutions, and business, industry, and labor are outlined in separate sections. All must cooperate to accomplish necessary changes. (MLH)
