Summary

This monograph is directed toward policy makers, parents, students, educational leaders, teachers, taxpayers and society as a whole, aiming at their involvement and the attainment of excellence in education. People living in a rapidly changing society have many expectations for education, among which are the teaching of moral and ethical values, basic skills, affective objectives, the existence of a force for social action, and relevance and accountability. One problem in achieving excellence is that diverse groups fail to communicate properly and do not become effectively involved in setting goals for quality in education. Excellence in education occurs when quality becomes a primary goal; when flexible attitudes prevail toward procedures in schools and school systems; when high standards are observed in the home, school and community; when priorities permit resources to support excellence; when the learning needs of all are included; and, when continuous, cooperative, comprehensive long range planning is implemented. Public education is the responsibility of each state, which must provide the needed leadership through a state coordinating agency. The local educational board must accept responsibility for improving schools. In all cases, wide involvement of lay, professional, and governmental elements of society is necessary.
