Students Continually Learning: A Report of Presentations, Student Voices and State Actions.
Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.; Forum for Youth Investment, Takoma Park, MD.
The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), a nationwide nonprofit organization of public officials who head state departments of elementary and secondary education, provides leadership on major education initiatives. In 1999, CCSSO embarked on the initiative "Students Continually Learning," which focused on three issues: early development and school readiness, extended time to learn to ensure that all students achieve standards, and student motivation. This report discusses the initiative, including CCSSO's 1999 Summer Institute held in Girdwood, Alaska with the help of the Forum for Youth Investment. Part 1 of the report serves as an overview and includes sections on early childhood care and development, extended learning opportunities, expanded learning and doing opportunities, and expanded definitions of learning. Part 2 summarizes presentations and discussion from the Summer Institute in each of the three areas addressed by the initiative. Part 3 presents CCSSO policy statements on early childhood and family education, extended learning opportunities, and student motivation. (Contains 15 references.) (EV)
