SERVE, the Southeastern Regional Vision for Education, is a coalition of educators, business leaders, governors, and policymakers seeking comprehensive and lasting educational improvement in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina. This document contains the proceedings of a forum on the status of federal initiatives and the status of national-standards development, and explores ways that SERVE could better assist the development and improvement of education-reform activities. The meeting was structured around three themes--a perspective from Washington, D.C. on national education initiatives and resources; current statewide reform strategies in the six SERVE states; and the status of national content standards development. The use of technology was discussed as an avenue for changing the delivery system. A conclusion was that one of the most difficult tasks will be linking reform efforts, policy, and practice. Appendices contain a list of participants and information on the status of systemic educational planning in the SERVE states. (LMI)
