National Educational Goals: Can They Lead Schools to Real Reform? Noteworthy Series.
Mid-Continent Regional Educational Lab., Aurora, CO.
In February 1990, the nation's governors adopted a set of goals designed to shape education reform efforts for the 1990s. The six goals address such pressing national education issues as early childhood education; school completion; student achievement and citizenship; math and science; literacy and lifelong learning; and safe, disciplined, and drug-free schools. They propose specific, obtainable objectives designed to enable schools to equip young people with skills needed to compete in the international marketplace. Featured are the observations and recommendations of the Mid-continent Regional Education Laboratory staff members, each of whom have a special interest and expertise in one of the six national goals. This document is divided into six sections, each of which is an article addressing one of the six national education goals. The articles discuss what actions need to be taken in order to achieve the various goals by the year 2000. Also included in this document is a summary of the objectives the Mid-continent Regional Education Laboratory staff members have for the goals they addressed. (KDP)
