Education Is Iowa's Future: The State Plan for Educational Excellence in the 21st Century. Revised.
Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.
Iowa's education system is preparing for the 21st century by building on its past and present strengths. This report outlines the strategic plan established by the Iowa State Board of Education and the Iowa Department of Education. The plan establishes four interrelated goals for education in Iowa. Part 1 establishes an overall goal for Iowa's education system--improved student learning, achievement, and performance. It also describes the changing economic, social, and technological conditions that create the need for continuous improvement in the education system. Part 2 establishes three goals for the State Board and the Department of Education that support the overall system goal. The second part also identifies the specific strategies by which the State Board and the Department should work to achieve the three goals. Part 3 describes the various indicators that will measure the progress being made in attaining the goals. (LMI)
