The National Education Goals Report: Building a Nation of Learners. Volume Two: State Reports, 1993.
National Education Goals Panel, Washington, DC.
The second volume of the third annual National Education Goals Report contains profiles of the achievements of each state, the District of Columbia, and five territories toward the National Education Goals of 1990, which derived from the National Education Summit of 1989. In brief, the goals for achievement by the year 2000: (1) all children in America will start school ready to learn; (2) the high school graduation rate will increase to at least 90 percent; (3) American students will leave grades 4, 8, and 12 having demonstrated competence in particular areas, prepared for responsible citizenship; (4) U.S. students will be first in the world in science and mathematics achievement; (5) every adult will be literate and possess the knowledge and skills needed in a global economy; and (6) every school will be free of drugs and violence. The profile for each state summarizes indicators for each of the six goals, with tabulated data and a bar graph for each goal for which information is available. The four-page profile for each state lists (1) direct measures of the goal; and (2) measures of the objectives. When available, baseline and 1993 Goals Report data are provided. Appended are 24 references and technical notes relating to the statistical data. (SLD)
