Raising the Educational Achievement of Secondary School Students: An Idea Book. Summary
Department of Education, Washington, DC. Office of the Under Secretary.
Three federal initiatives--Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the Goals 2000: Educate America Act, and the School-to-Work Opportunities Act--are working together to assist secondary schools in meeting current challenges. This pamphlet describes a two-volume book that presents a mix of research-based ideas and promising approaches to secondary schooling. The first volume describes a variety of promising practices and principles for reform supported by current research. Volume 2 illustrates how some secondary schools have successfully put to work the principles of good practice. The innovative efforts suggest ways in which new federal initiatives can together support secondary schools' efforts to raise their students' academic-achievement levels. The programs incorporate the following principles: (1) strengthening and enriching the secondary school curriculum; (2) adapting organizations to increase learning; (3) linking schooling to the future; (4) creating networks of support for students; and (5) providing resources for improvement.
