For SREB States--Information and Actions to Lead the Nation in Educational Progress. 2004 Annual Report
Southern Regional Education Board
The Southern Regional Education Board was the first education organization in the nation to stress that states not only should set goals for education but also should measure progress toward those goals and monitor trends. Now, the SREB Challenge to Lead Goals for Education in the 21st century make a dramatic statement: "SREB states can lead the nation in educational progress." That bold statement and the accompanying goals are a set of challenges to every state. Students at every level need to be ready for learning, ready to learn in first grade, ready for the middle grades and high school, and ready for college and the workplace. Achievement gaps need to be closed. Schools and colleges need to be ready for students. States need to provide leadership through one system of quality schools and colleges and universities for all the South's citizens.
