Striving for Excellence: The National Education Priorities of the President and the U.S. Department of Education. Volume IV.
ACCESS ERIC, Rockville, MD.; Educational Resources Information Center (ED), Washington, DC.
This volume is a compilation of digests produced by the 16 Clearinghouses that constitute the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). Each ERIC Clearinghouse covers a specific area of education, selects materials for an education database, develops publications, and responds to requests for information on education topics. The 80 ERIC Digests in this volume provide an overview of issues, programs, and research related to the 7 education priorities established by the President and the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education. The first 3 priorities identify specific performance results that all children should achieve at critical points in their schooling: reading independently by the end of third grade (priority 1); competency in mathematics, including the foundations of algebra and geometry, by the end of eighth grade (priority 2); and being prepared for and able to afford college at 18 years of age (priority 3). Priorities four through seven identify key strategies to help students achieve these performance results: high standards of achievement and accountability for all children (priority 4); high-quality teachers (priority 5); technology in the classroom (priority 6); and schools that are safe, drug-free, and modernized to meet current and future challenges (priority 7). The Digests are grouped under these seven priorities and are organized alphabetically within each section. (RJM)
