America is faced with making systemic changes in education that will insure continuance of her leadership role in the 21st century. In an effort to make changes toward the aforementioned reforms, the federal government has charged 16 participating Federal agencies with achieving goals that will ensure that all students learn to use their minds well so they may be prepared for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment in the economy. This article describes the strategic plan for education outlined by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), one of the sixteen participating organizations. Included in the document are (1) a list of NASA's goals regarding education reform; (2) descriptions of programs, on the elementary, and secondary, and higher education level, designed to improve the technological competence of students; (3) technology and evaluation programs; (4) educational publications to supplement programs; and (5) a resource section which lists NASA's national and regional Teacher Resource Centers and introduces the reader to NASA's Central Operation of Resources for Educators (CORE). CORE distributes materials in audiovisual format. (ZWH)
