Summary

Four basic propositions which affect all teachers, presented in the first part of this speech, are: 1) that the prime goal of education is to advance quality of education and equality of educational opportunity; 2) that teachers and teaching are most important factors affecting quality of education for students, and that teachers can and must play a strong role in advancing equality of educational opportunity; 3) that the best chance for improving school services and processes occurs through advancement of a strong partnership between a solid state department of education and the school systems of the state; and 4) that unless the best that the state department of education and the local school system have to offer can be combined for quality and equality of educational opportunity, other patterns of decision making will control public education in our country, perhaps radically changing present systems. Each proposition is examined and commented upon. In conclusion the author calls for teacher improvement, the setting of goals, assessment, evaluation, and accountability programs for education, and strengthening of local and state systems. The second part of the speech deals with advancing democratic human relations through education. A related document is ED 063 178. (Author/SJM)
