Summary

Addressed to those responsible for educating the rising generation, this collection of excerpts from educational reports is designed to reflect and to encourage the recent emphasis on excellence and civic virtue in public schools. After a foreword by President Reagan, the publication presents an essay by William J. Bennett discussing "Authority, Discipline, Excellence." Ernest W. Lefever then discusses the results of the Maryland Commission on Values Education that formulated ten character objectives and eight related citizen objectives compatible with and supportive of the American democratic tradition. Specific recommendations from the report "A Nation at Risk" for enhancing excellence in public schools are provided. In 1984 an ad hoc group on their own initiative issued a statement in booklet form entitled "Developing Character, Transmitting Knowledge: Sustaining the Momentum for Reform in American Education." Principal recommendations from this report are provided. Appendices contain Richard Schifter's letter to the Maryland Attorney General and the Attorney General's response and recommendations of the Maryland Commission on Values in Education. Suggestions for further reading are provided. (RM)
