Guidebook to Excellence 1994: A [National] Directory of Federal Resources for Mathematics and Science Education Improvement.
Eisenhower National Clearinghouse for Mathematics and Science Education, Columbus, OH.
The purpose of this directory is to assist educators, parents, and students in attaining the National Education Goals, particularly Goal 4: "By the year 2000, U.S. students will be first in the world in science and mathematics achievement." The guidebook describes programs, along with contact information, that assist students who will go on to study in college or technical school, as well as programs to improve general mathematical and scientific literacy. The directory is divided into three sections. Section One: Agency Overviews contains general information about each of the 16 federal agencies that collaborated with the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse to produce this publication. Each agency highlights its involvement in mathematics and science education and acquaints the reader with agency-specific background information. Section Two: National Programs for Elementary and Secondary Education features nationwide agency-sponsored mathematics and science programs. Each program entry includes the program name, a brief program description, and contact information. Section Three: State Highlights lists, within state and territory groupings, agency resources that are available at the local level. The document concludes with an index of teacher programs; student programs; comprehensive programs; evaluation, dissemination, and technical assistance programs; and educational technology programs.
