Education for All: A Global Commitment. A Report of the United States to the International Consultative Forum on Education for All.
Fiske, Edward B.; O'Grady, Barbara
This document constitutes the United States Education for All 2000 Assessment Report. The report was organized and prepared with the oversight of an eight-member commission made up of representatives of both government and private organizations in the United States. As the United States continues to improve its educational system, it remains deeply committed to engagement in international education and to sharing its experiences with others. The following activities, essential to improving education over the next 15 years, offer opportunities for collaboration with other countries as the nations of the world work together toward the goal of increased opportunities for education for all: (1) increase educational quality; (2) increase access to formal schooling and other forms of education; (3) strengthen the skills of new and experienced teachers; (4) explore the strengths of various educational technologies and enhance access to them; (5) increase international comparisons and assessments; and (6) pursue an agenda of continuous learning from early childhood on.
