National Education Commission on Time and Learning Annual Report, Fiscal Year 1992.
National Education Commission on Time and Learning, Washington, DC.
This report describes the work of the National Education Commission on Time and Learning, created by Congress in June 1991 to examine the quality and adequacy of the time American students spend on study and learning. The report provides biographical profiles of the nine Commission members and outlines the topics that have been or will be addressed in public hearings. Through hearings, school visits, research papers, reports, and consultations with various individuals in the education community, the Committee has amassed a wealth of information on time and learning issues. Thirty-two findings and observations gleaned from these sources are presented. These findings and observations address the following areas: (1) time and the school reform movement; (2) time for student learning; (3) time for teachers; (4) out-of-school time and youth employment; (5) parent and community involvement; (6) student motivation; (7) international comparisons; and (8) promising practices. Also included is a list of 16 questions, compiled by the commissioners themselves, to assist in preparing their final report and recommendations, to be issued in April 1994. Three appendices provide the business addresses and telephone numbers of the commissioners; a list of the Commission hearings, meetings, and site visits; and a copy of a nine-question survey that was widely distributed to associations and computer networks.
