NASA's Strategic Plan for Education. A Strategy for Change: 1993-1998. First Edition.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Washington, DC.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA's) education vision is to promote excellence in America's education system through enhancing and expanding scientific and technological competence. In doing so, NASA strives to be recognized by the education community as the premier mission agency in support of the National Education Goals and in the development and implementation of education standards. To realize this vision, NASA has clearly defined and developed three specific goals to promote excellence in education. Specific objectives and milestones are defined for each goal in the body of this strategic plan. Goal 1: To maintain that segment of NASA's current education program that is judged to be effective, based on internal and external customer measures of success. Such maintenance involves individual program revision, expansion, or elimination. Goal 2: To implement new education reform initiatives which specifically address NASA mission requirements and national education reform. Goal 3: To significantly expand the impact of the NASA education program by developing partnerships with external constituencies. This plan also delineates three "enabling systems" which support all of NASA's education programs and contribute to the achievement of the goals. These are: evaluation, educational technology, and dissemination. In order to implement the strategy, four broad-based management priorities have been identified to guide the process of change.
