This policy plan presents Connecticut's revised Statewide Educational Goals for Students for 1991-95.

Goal one is that students will be motivated to learn and to meet the higher expectations. The second goal requires proficiency in the basic skills essential for learning and for success in society. Fuller realization of individual potential and responsible citizenship through learning is the aim of goal three. The fourth goal is to help adults and students function successfully in multiple roles in society. Goal five states that students as citizens will enrich their family, community, and culture and create equal opportunity for all persons in society. The sixth goal is to improve the quality of instruction and curriculum. Improving the delivery of quality education and occupation-specific training below the associate-degree level in the state's regional vocational-technical school system is the seventh goal. Goal eight is to assess the condition of the state's education system. Appendices A and B include the comprehensive plan legislation and Connecticut's Common Core of Learning. (JPT)
