The next section lists nine ways that employers can support education under the headings of "Expect Good Students To Make Better Workers,""Expect Good Parents To Make Better Workers," and "Help Schools and Kids Expect More." The 12 recommendations for teachers, administrators, and principals fall in the categories of "Expect More,""Expect Everyone To Get into the Act," and "Be a Part of a Teaching and Learning Community." Finally, 10 ways are recommended in which grandparents, neighbors, and concerned citizens can raise the expectations of children, parents, and school officials. (AC)
