ACCESS ERIC, Rockville, MD.; Educational Resources Information Center (ED), Washington, DC.
The Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) is a nationwide information system sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI). As part of the National Library of Education, ERIC maintains the largest education database in the world. This document consists of 82 ERIC Digests, which are 2-page research syntheses written by each of the 16 Clearinghouses that form the ERIC system. The digests in this volume provide an overview of issues, programs, and research related to the National Education Goals. They are grouped into eight sections corresponding to the goals and are organized alphabetically within each section. The introduction provides a history of the development of the National Education Goals and the passage of the Goals 2000: Educate America Act. It also describes the ways in which states are spending federal funding to achieve the national goals and summarizes findings of the National Education Goals Panel's "1996 Goals Report," which concluded that the nation has advanced significantly in five areas and faltered in eight. References accompany each digest. (LMI)
