The exhibits, appendices, and thetext for Chapters 3 and 4 are not included.]Foreword--------The National Education Goals remain at the forefront of the movementto build a nation of learners. In the past year, the Presidencychanged hands, as have over half the Governorships in the four yearssince the Education Summit in Charlottesville, Virginia. Thesechanges serve to underscore the continuity, bipartisanship, andlong-term nature of the National Goals process.Where vision and commitment count the most, however, is at thecommunity and neighborhood levels. Only through an enduringpartnership of families, educators, employers, and other dedicatedcitizens can America's learning enterprise--our local schools--betransformed to help all our children reach their full potential.Only then will we become a nation of lifelong learners. And onlythen can we be confident of meeting the competition in this globaleconomy, assuring a high quality of life, and preserving ourdemocratic system and ideals.This Report continues our commitment to let the American peopleknow the results we are getting in education. We strive to presentthe facts plainly, this year in two volumes: Volume 1 describesour educational standing as a nation, while Volume 2 profilesperformance in the individual states. We also offer a vision ofhow high standards can help mobilize grass-roots partnerships andmove the United States toward quality education. And continue tomove forward we must--at an accelerated pace--in order to attainthe Goals by the year 2000.Over the past year, the National Education Goals Panel has workedhard to bring the Goals and the vision of high-performance learningfor all to this nation's communities. The theme for this thirdannual Report, "Setting Standards, Becoming the Best," highlightsthat outreach and partnership effort. Along with state and localgoals, vision documents, and progress reports, we hope this Reportwill become a tool for continuous improvement.Sincerely,E.
