Full Service School-Community Collaboration Conference. Remarks as Prepared for Delivery by U.S. Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley.
Riley, Richard W.
Richard W. Riley, Secretary of Education, provides his remarks concerning today's big-city schools and the new hopeful realism that is being created through building more community partnerships that want to turn low-performing schools around. The Secretary discusses the government's role in school construction and the need to increase after-school programs and community-school relationships. Concluding comments address government efforts in funding school improvement initiatives; undertaking community-wide approaches to preventing violence, decreasing drug use, and giving students healthier options about how to live their lives; and decreasing drop-out rates.
