The National Education Goals Report for Kansas: Building a Nation of Learners.
National Education Goals Panel (ED), Washington, DC.
Kansas has schools that compare well with the rest of the states. Kansas has met the 90% high school completion goal, with one of the highest graduation rates in the country and a low dropout rate. Kansas is also making significant progress in school readiness, with increasing numbers of Kansas women receiving early prenatal care, and fewer infants being born with health risks that can affect their school performance. These outcomes are related to Goals 1 and 2 of the National Education Goals. Kansas is also working toward the professional development of teachers, which is Goal 4. Advances have been made in measures of adult literacy and lifelong learning, and in increasing the number of voters, objectives associated with Goal 6. To date, Kansas has not participated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress, so data related to mathematics and science achievement (Goals 3 and 5) are not yet available. The Kansas state indicators for each of the eight National Education Goals are listed. Data that show progress for each goal are presented in chart form. Technical notes and information on the sources for the state indicators supplement the report. (SLD)
