Goals 2000: Educate America Act Overview and Analysis.
Stedman, James B.; And Others
This report provides an overview and analysis of the Clinton Administration's school reform proposal, Goals 2000: Educate America Act, submitted to the 103d Congress on April 22, 1993. The proposal, which seeks to create a national structure for supporting school reform, addresses three primary topics: (1) education goals, standards, and assessments; (2) state and local educational reform; and (3) work force standards. Achievement of educational goals, standards, and assessments would involve the establishment in law of the National Education Goals Panel (NEGP) and the National Education Standards and Improvement Council (NESIC). The legislation would also authorize State and Local Education Systemic Improvement grants to support state and local education systemic improvement. Finally, it would establish a National Skill Standards Board (NSSB) to develop a national system of voluntary occupational standards and certification. Each of these facets of the proposed legislation is succinctly detailed in this report. (LMI)
