The National Education Goals Report: Building the Best. Summary Guide, 1993.
National Education Goals Panel, Washington, DC.
This Summary Guide to the third Annual Report of the National Education Goals Panel continues the commitment of the Panel to let the American people know the results being achieved in education. Facts about performance are presented, with tangible guidance about what each citizen can do to make the Goals a reality. The National Education Goals developing from the Education Summit of 1989 represent the educational centerpiece of both the Bush and Clinton administrations and serve as a nationwide compact for education. The most recent national assessments indicate that students are showing some improvement in mathematics, but that few understand complex mathematics theory and problems. Similar findings appear in measurements of reading ability. Because only about one-fourth of the nation's households include school-age children, depending on parents alone to improve education is not enough. All concerned citizens must work for better education. Specific suggestions are offered to help make the U.S. education system the best in the world. Five bar graphs illustrate aspects of progress toward the national goals. (SLD)
