California State Univ., Long Beach. Inst. for Teaching and Learning.
This final report summarizes activities of a subcommittee of the Committee on Educational Policy of the Board of Trustees of the California State University (CSU) which examined CSU's relationship to the public schools. Introductory material discusses CSU's educational mission and the background of this effort to strengthen the link with California's schools. The subcommittee's vision of a university environment that fulfills its mission with respect to K-12 schools is displayed with four goals highlighted: (1) the CSU campus as the educational hub for the region; (2) K-12 and the university as full and equal partners; (3) strengthening the link with schools as a university-wide responsibility; and (4) relationships between CSU and the schools as strategically focused on improving education for California's diverse students. Next, examples of current efforts with K-12 schools by the 20 CSU campuses are briefly described in the following areas: improving the high school graduation rate; ensuring equal educational opportunities for all; achieving safe and drug free schools; enhancing K-12 curriculum and assessment; focusing on children and school readiness; increasing adult literacy; improving teacher preparation; and focusing on science, math, and technology.
