Education Commission of the States (NJ3)
This revised edition of "Prisoners of Time" is designed to refocus attention on the critical issue of using time as a resource for teaching and learning. It contains the same text as the original report but also includes some up-to-date examples of the creative and productive ways in which schools can use time. State and local education leaders are called upon to take on this agenda as an important opportunity to improve student learning across a broad range of skills-and thus the economic and civic strength of the country. Appended are: (1) Members of the National Education Commission on Time and Learning; (2) Letter of Transmittal; (3) Acknowledgments; and (4) Glossary. [This report was funded by a grant from Washington Mutual to the Education Commission of the States, with support from Learning Point Associates.]
