Achieve, Inc., Washington, DC.
There is, among some groups in America today, a sense of urgency about educational reform. This publication summarizes the proceedings of the 1996 National Education Summit held in Palisades, New York. Governors and business, education, and community leaders met to initiate a national effort to establish high academic standards, assessment, and accountability. The conference also sought to find ways to improve the use of school technology as a tool to reach high standards. The publication contains highlights of plans for actions that will raise K-12 academic standards and establish methods for assessment and accountability. The document also contains excerpts from the 1996 National Education Summit policy statement, examples of outstanding K-12 technology, and summaries of 12 commissioned papers that addressed the implementation of high academic standards, assessment, and accountability, and the potential of technology. A list of the conference participants and of resources is included. (LMI)
