Preparing Our Students for the 21st Century: Key Areas in Education.
Partnership for Family Involvement in Education (ED), Washington, DC.
Family, business, and community involvement in education can make a significant difference in preparing our children to succeed in an increasingly global job market. This pamphlet outlines six priority educational action areas on which schools/communities can focus America Goes Back to School events or long-term projects. The six areas outlined are: (1) Making schools safe and drug free; (2) Recruiting and preparing quality teachers; (3) Modernizing schools; (4) Expanding after-school programs; (5) Getting high standards into every classroom; and (6) Increasing pathways to college and careers. For each of these areas, the pamphlet provides a rationale, related facts, model programs, America Goes Back to School ideas, and a list of resources. The pamphlet concludes with the article "A New Millennium: Reflecting on Educational Change and Opportunity," which discusses historical events that still affect education today and current events that will shape the future of education.
