Striving for Excellence: The National Education Goals. Volume II.
Gronlund, Laurie E., Ed.
This document consists of 39 ERIC Digests, which are two-page research syntheses written by each of the 16 Clearinghouses that form the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) System. The digests describe issues, exemplary programs and promising practices, and research results related to the National Education Goals, a framework for action originally adopted in 1990. The introductory digest, "Understanding the National Education Goals," describes where America currently stands in relation to achieving the Goals. Background information, such as why and how the Goals were developed and the federal government's new focus, is also covered. The next three digests describe the roles that librarians, teacher educators, and counselors (respectively) play in regard to supporting and accomplishing the Goals. The remaining digests are grouped into six sections that specifically address each Goal: Goal 1--Readiness for School; Goal 2--High School Completion; Goal 3--Student Achievement and Citizenship; Goal 4--Science and Mathematics; Goal 5--Adult Literacy and Lifelong Learning; and Goal 6--Safe, Disciplined, and Drug-Free Schools.
