Cross-Cutting Education Reform Initiatives.
Office of Vocational and Adult Education (ED), Washington, DC.
This publication describes an effort of the U.S. Department of Education to promote comprehensive educational reform by consolidating various elements and programs. The "cross-cutting" approach described considers the links among vocational-technical education, elementary and secondary education, postsecondary education, and workforce preparation programs; and involves coordinating planning and cooperation at the federal, state, and local levels. To convey how these cross-cutting efforts translate into specific initiatives, brief descriptions of specific strategies that address the cross-cutting approach are provided: (1) The Education Flexibility (Ed-Flex) Partnership Demonstration Program; (2) Waivers of Federal Education Program Requirements; (3) The GOALS 2000: Educate America Act; (4) The School-to-Work Opportunities Act; (5) Integrated Review Teams; (6) Regional Conferences on Improving America's Schools; and (7) Serving Out-of-School Youth in a School-to-Work Framework.
