Wyoming's Education Progress Report--1993.
Wyoming State Dept. of Education, Cheyenne.
This document comprises the third annual Wyoming Education Progress Report, which measures the state's progress toward achieving the six National Education Goals by the year 2000. Three years of data indicate that parents, educators, and students are responding to the national and local education goals, and that more Wyoming students are preparing for college work. However, the number of single-parent births is above the national average, the violent death rate among teenagers remains high, many students lack basic skills in reading and mathematics, and there is a lack of indicators for education, health, and family service systems. Each section of the document reports on Wyoming's progress toward meeting a specific National Education Goal and describes state objectives and actions. The state receives satisfactory ratings for the first five Goals. A list of Wyoming education goals and checklist of citizen actions are included. It is suggested that new goals, complementary to the national goals, be developed in the following areas: parental involvement, support of teachers and leaders, time and space allocation, technology, relevant course content, multiculturalism, business partnerships, comprehensive health programs, cooperation, and discipline and safety.
