America 2000: The President's Education Strategy. CRS Report for Congress.
Stedman, James B.
America 2000, the national strategy proposed in 1991 by the Bush Administration to achieve six national education goals that were adopted in 1990 by President Bush and the Nation's Governors, consists of four broad components: the reform of current schools; the development of new school models; the enhancement of workers' skills; and the coalescing of communities behind the President's strategy. This report provides an overview of the strategy; describes the roles, as delineated in the strategy, to be played by different levels of government, the business community, and the public; presents a table showing the Administration's proposed fiscal year 1992 funding for initiatives related to the strategy; and concludes with an analysis of some issues relevant to federal policy making. The issues include the approach to reform, research and development, coverage of the goals, promotion of school choice, and development of new model schools. (LMI)
