Coley, Richard J.; Goertz, Margaret E.
This report describes state educational standards in effect for the 1989-90 school year. It is the third report in a series that has tracked state standards since 1984-85. The first part of the report summarizes state educational standards for the 1989-90 school year and the changes that took place across the states between 1984-85 and 1989-90. The second part of the report contains individual profiles of each of the 50 states. These profiles present more detailed information on: (1) student standards (testing, high school graduation requirements, attendance, and other policies); (2) teacher standards (teacher preparation, certification and relicensing, and staff development); (3) school and district standards (minimum length of the school year and school day and curriculum requirements); and (4) public school choice programs. Seven figures and four tables summarize state standards. (Author)
