School of Education dean named to National Education Council

STANFORD -- The National Education Goals Panel has appointed Stanford's School of Education Dean Marshall S. Smith to its Interim Council on Standards.

President George Bush's America 2000 education strategy charges the National Education Goals Panel with:

  • Establishing world-class standards in five core subjects -- English, geography, history, mathematics and science.
  • Helping to establish a voluntary national testing system that will provide "prompt, accurate information to parents, educators and policymakers on progress toward the . . . standards by individual students, schools, school systems, states, and the nation."

The Interim Council will make recommendations to the panel and to the public at large on both preliminary and long-term policies and structures to meet these goals.

The council will include members of the Bush administration and the U.S. Congress, high state-level school officers, state legislators, teachers, school administrators, and representatives from the higher education and business sectors. The council plans to meet once a month in Washington, D.C.
