Pathways to Excellence: A Federal Strategy for Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology Education. U.S. Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology Education Strategic Plan FY1994-FY1998.
Federal Coordinating Council for Science, Engineering and Technology, Washington, DC.
This strategic plan, based on two years of coordinated interagency effort, presents a five-year planning framework and associated milestones that focus the plans and resources of the participating Federal agencies toward achieving the National Education Goals in terms of the competence in mathematics and science expected of all students. The Plan also identifies three tiers of program activities, presented in descending order of priority, with goals that address issues in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education meriting special attention. Within each tier, individual agency programs play important and often unique roles that strengthen the aggregate portfolio. The following three tiers are discussed: Tier I: Reforming the Formal Education System; Tier II: Expanding Participation Access; and Tier III: Enabling Activities. Implementation of the Plan will require more effective use of extant Federal human and institutional capabilities. Monitoring the progress and performance of activities outlined in the Plan will continue. (PR)
