This document was and is the strategic plan for 'transformation' of education inthe U.S. and presumably the rest of the world. You will find that the systemdescribed by Marc Tucker in his letter to Hillary corresponds to the concepts inthis document and you will find the legislation following is the implementation of it.

t is always in hindsight - when their output is published, that we can learn theirmandate, methods and plans. ³«.the collaborative effort of representatives of education agencies andassociations at the state, local and national levels who participate in the NationalForum on
E
ducation Statistics.´.Major strategic goal: ³to develop a comprehensive core system of comparable local, state, and federaldata useful to policymakers and educators at all levels of government. TheForum will identify and define the core data needed to operate schools anddistricts, to support state and federal program reports, and to guide educationpolicy at all levels.´ 
I
t is important to note that when this project was initiated, the collection of statistics was voluntary as indicated by this statement: ³The Forum¶s mission is to develop and recommend strategies for strengtheninga voluntary national education data system--one that fosters cooperation among
 
e
x
isting local, state, and federal systems-- to support the improvement of public
 
and private education throughout the United States´.

 ³Secretary¶s Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS)Computer systems work with sets of information.
E
ach entity within the set mustrepresent the same thing. (Refer back to Tucker¶s letter on standardization of curriculum, pedagogy, licensing, etc.)This project was to define the standard set of job specifications and qualificationsthat an applicant would need to fill the job so that a µcertificate¶ of skillsattainment for that job would mean the same thing across the country.Theproject to designthe system of specifications and certifications was initiatedin
1990
at the behest of then Secretary of 
L
abor,
E
lizabeth Dole. The projectwas named the µSecretary¶s Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS).  ³A variety of organizations use the Secretary¶s Commission on AchievingNecessary Skills Commission (SCANS) competencies and foundation skills as acurriculum foundation for secondary and postsecondary CT
E
and work forcedevelopment. This Highlight Zone describes useful practices in assessing e
x
istinginstruction, planning inclusion of SCANS, applying SCANS both in individualprograms and across the curriculum, and preparing instructors to integratecompetency-based instruction in SCANS.[4

 Much of the drive to teach and assess employability skills comes from concernsabout this country¶s ability to remain competitive in the world economy. Recentresearch (The Aspen

nstitute2

2) shows that, in addition to a changingeconomy, we are also facing many other challenges such as decreased growth inthe native-born work force and an increase in foreign-born workers, a decreasein growth in both high school and college graduation rates (
B
arton 2

2), and anever-growing gap in the skill level and wages earned between the highest andlowest skilled workers (Krugman 2
00
2).The Aspen
I
nstitute report warns: ³
W
ithout a dramatic change in the way wetrain and support workers, we will fall short of finding the highly skilled,adaptable, and technologically sophisticated labor force we need to compete inthe future global economy´ (p.
