Background on the National Education Goals Panel.
National Education Goals Panel, Washington, DC.
The history and accomplishments of the National Education Goals Panel (NEGP) are traced from the Education Summit in Charlottesville (Virginia) in 1989 when President Bush and 50 state governors agreed to set education goals for the nation. The goals were announced in February 1990, and the NEGP was formed in July 1990 to issue annual reports on the progress of the nation and the states toward these goals. The work of Resource Groups, regional forums, and Technical Planning Subgroups culminated in the first annual Goals Report in September 1991. The report of the National Council on Education Standards and Testing in January 1992 further defined the standard setting responsibilities of the NEGP. In the same month, the NEGP adopted a resolution on the future role of the National Assessment of Educational Progress and the release of its results in conjunction with the annual Goals Report. In March 1992, resolutions were passed by the NEGP in support of measurement of progress toward Goals 1 and 2. The 1992 Goals Report was issued in September 1992. The next steps for the NEGP are outlined, as it continues to help develop national assessment systems. (SLD)
