Achieving the Vision--1992 Report.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
Educational outcomes of the Alberta education system for 1991-92 are presented in this report. Progress toward each of the 13 priority areas set forth in the provincial action plan, "Vision for the Nineties," is described. The ratings were based on the collective judgment of senior Alberta education managers. Information is presented on curriculum; student persistence; education for immigrant, Native children, and disabled children; science achievement; excellence in teaching and schools; equal opportunity; and educational partnerships. Findings indicate that Alberta has a solid education system, but that it can and must be improved. Overall, the system receives a B-, the same rating it received in 1991. Progress is demonstrated by improved student persistence, improved science programs and science achievement, and the growth of partnerships. On the less positive side, Alberta schools have experienced increasing inequities among school jurisdictions, a slight decline in students' basic skills, and concern over mathematics achievement. A contact list for additional information, 22 tables, and 52 figures are included. (Contains 40 references.) (LMI)
