Testimony of Secretary Richard W. Riley on the fiscal year 1996 budget for the Department of Education before the Senate Subcommittee on Appropriations for Labor, Health & Human Services, and Education and related agencies, March 5, 1996 by Richard W Riley( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document contains the testimony of Richard W. Riley, Secretary of Education, on the fiscal year 1996 budget for the Department of Education (DOE), made before the Senate Subcommittee on Appropriations for Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education and Related Agencies. The lack of appropriation has two major effects on the DOE and its customers: it impedes planning and threatens large cuts in educational services. The current budget system has also undermined the longstanding practice of forward-funding DOE programs. Title I Grants to Local Educational Agencies would lose 1.1 billion dollars, or 17 percent, under the 1996 House appropriations bill. Reductions in Title I would also undermine the Goals 2000 and School-to-Work programs. The Senate and House committee bills would cut funding for the Safe and Drug-Free Schools program by 60 percent. The proposed budget would also directly affect classrooms, because staff and administrative spending have already been reduced. The Secretary requested at least $4 46 million for raising academic standards through Goals 2000, $7 .3 billion for improving basic skills through Title I, and $4 66 million for Safe and Drug-Free Schools

Section 2, "What Is Wrong with the System?" Explains that an outdated teacher training and support system cannot be allowed to frustrate the hopes and dreams of too many teachers.

Section 4, "Improving Recruitment," discusses ways to recruit teachers that will interest the next generation of teachers.

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Secretary of Education, Richard W. Riley, addressed the American Institute of Architects on the problem of school safety resulting from building age and/or building code violations. The Secretary stated that the problem is a large national embarrassment and reveals the Clinton Administration's response through new construction bonds and tax credits for holders of these bonds. Mr. Riley indicated that the school construction explosion is beginning and that this affords architects and their colleagues an opportunity to create better and more engaging learning environments. Finally, the Secretary stated that the Administration is seeking new ways to engage Americans in the process of school designs that can be vital centers of the community, and challenges architects to build buildings that not only accommodates the schools' functional needs, but can lift children up towards the information age.

Schools as centers of community : remarks as prepared for delivery by Richard W Riley( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education provides his viewpoints on maintaining strong public support for public education by reaching out to every part of the community. The Secretary urges Congress to act on school modernization. He discusses the emerging focus of architecture that now creates schools as community learning centers and the benefits of bringing the entire community into the process of school design. The Secretary argues for building smaller schools to help foster educational and operational efficiencies and presents a few ideas for accomplishing this goal. He further argues that smaller schools can help parents become more involved in their schools, can effect residential growth patterns and impact suburban sprawl, and can provide the catalyst for bringing a community together in reviving a neighborhood. Further argued is the concept of building new schools that are multi-purpose in nature in order to bring the school closer to a community. Finally, the Secretary stresses the importance of linking schools to other learning centers such as museums, businesses, and environmental centers in order to enhance the learning experience. (Gr)

A back to school special report : the baby boom echo by Richard W Riley( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this news release, United States Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley states that a record 51.7 million students will enter the nation's classrooms in the Fall of 1996. Enrollment is expected to reach 54.6 million students in public and private elementary schools in the year 2006. The Secretary noted that nationwide about 190,000 additional teachers and some 6,000 more schools will be needed over the next 10 years to accommodate what demographers call the "baby-boom echo"--The children of the so-called baby-boomer generation who are now in school. States expected to experience an overall jump of more than 10 percent in enrollments over the next decade include Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Oregon, and Washington. In all, 33 states will have rising enrollments. Secretary Riley cited four factors for rising enrollments--a delay in marriage and child bearing among baby boomers, a higher birth rate among minorities, immigration, and students staying in school longer. High school enrollment will increase by 15 percent nationwide over the next decade, and the number of students attending America's colleges will grow by some 2 million. Riley asserts that if American society provides all students with the skills and knowledge demanded by the jobs of the next century, America can expect rising incomes and solid economic growth. Methodological notes, 12 figures, and 8 tables are included

This paper presents the contents of an address given by Richard W. Riley, United States Secretary of Education, on February 28, 1996, in St. Louis, Missouri, on the state of American education.

The paper describes current challenges to public education and outlines seven goals for improving it: (1) increase the national literacy rate; (2) support families so that they can help their children learn; (3) create safe, orderly, and disciplined schools; (4) set and achieve high standards; (5) promote educational innovation, including the use of technology and optional school choice; (6) prepare students for success in the work force; (7) sustain access to and find new ways to finance higher education; and (8) work together to find common ground to improve education.
