U.S. Department of Education Strategic Plan, 2002-2007.
Office of the Deputy Secretary (ED), Washington, DC.
The passage of the No Child Left Behind Act marks the most significant shift in federal education policy in 35 years. It calls for a revolutionary change in the culture and values of the American educational system and a transformation in the U.S. Department of Education's (DE) accountability practices. In the coming years, the DE will lead a national campaign to change the culture of the nation's education system. To accomplish this reform, the DE set six goals: (1) create a culture of achievement; (2) improve student achievement; (3) develop safe schools and strong character; (4) transform education into an evidence-based field; (5) enhance the quality of and access to postsecondary and adult education; and (6) establish management excellence. In this report, each goal is broken down into a series of objectives that lead to concrete results. Easy-to-read charts supplement the text. The ultimate objective of this act is to improve student achievement so that individuals may contribute to our democracy, economy, and communities, and live their own American dreams. (RT)
