This brochure highlights the National Education Goals to be accomplished by the year 2000. They include: ensuring that all children will start school ready to learn; increasing the high school graduation rate; improving learning by establishing challenging academic standards for all students, particularly in mathematics and science; making schools safe and drug-free; improving teaching; encouraging greater parental involvement; and helping all Americans to develop good job skills and become lifelong learners. The goals were developed with bipartisan support from the nation's governors, the Congress and Presidents Clinton and Bush.
