New Hampshire's Response to National Education Goals for the Year 2000.
New Hampshire Governor's Office, Concord.; New Hampshire State Dept. of Education, Concord.
In its effort to meet the challenges of the National Education Goals, New Hampshire is emphasizing three major goals: develop an outcome-based assessment program; formulate major reforms in science and mathematics education; and support the "break the mold" schools program. All state policies and programs are guided by common themes: children are the future, individuals and families must be taught problem-solving skills, community-based agencies best serve citizens' needs, and a well-informed public will support reform. This document outlines the state's plans for meeting the six National Education Goals: (1) ensuring that all children start school ready to learn; (2) a high school graduation rate of at least 90 percent; (3) student competency in English, mathematics, science, history, and geography at three grade levels; (4) making students the first in the world in mathematics and science; (5) adult literacy and competency as world citizens; and (6) schools free of drugs and violence. Four themes of the National Education Goals also guide the state's plans: creating better and more accountable schools, creating a new generation of schools, making America a nation of learners, and making communities learning places. Also included are the state's plans for school, public, and state libraries. (JPT)
