Goals 2000 Educate America Act 1994 . These goals were seen as an increased role of federal government in education. The goals included child readiness for school, 90% high school graduation rate, student competencies in grades 4, 8, and 12 for English, mathematics, science, foreign language, civics and government, economics, art, history, and geography. Further, the goals include that every adult American would be literate. Another goal was that every school would promote partnerships to increase parental involvement (http://www.nd.edu/~rbarger/www7/goals200.html).

Elementary and Secondary Act - No Child Left Behind Act 2001 . This large act established a larger federal role in education in the areas of “improving the academic achievement of the disadvantaged (Title I), preparing, training, and recruiting high quality teachers and principals (Title II), language instruction for limited English proficient and immigrant students (Title IV), promoting informed parental choice and innovative programs (Title V), flexibility and accountability (Title VI), Indian, native Hawaiian, and Alaska native education (Title VII), and impact aid program (Title VIII). Some major components of this act were to close the achievement gap, hold schools accountable, use state assessment systems to ensure that students are meeting the challenge, promote school-wide reform, and elevate the quality of instruction.

Each state plan must adopt challenging academic content standards applied to all schools and children in the state. Additionally, each state plan must demonstrate based on academic assessments what constitutes adequate yearly progress of the state. Beginning with 2002-2003, states must produce annual State report cards and participate in biennial state academic assessments of 4 th and 8 th grade reading and mathematics under the National Assessment of Educational Progress. The state report card needs to be concise, presented in an understandable format, aggregate information on state academic assessments and disaggregated by race, ethnicity, gender, disability, migrant status, English proficiency, and status as economically disadvantage, most recent two year trend in student achievement in each subject area and for each grade level, graduation rates, professional qualifications of teachers in the state,

Inventions that impacted schools

This section identifies just a few of the inventions that impacted schools. The crayons were developed in 1903 and the Model T car was sold in 1908. In the 1930’s there was the development of scotch tape, the analog computer, and photocopiers, although it was not until the 1950’s when the photocopier became available commercially. The 1940’s found the advances with the electronic digital computer developed by John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry at Iowa State University. The 1950’s advancements were television, and optic fiber. The1960’s had the audiocassette, the handheld calculator, the compact disk, and the computer mouse. The 1970’s saw the advancement with the floppy disk, the videocassette recorder, post it notes, laser printers, and cell phones. The 1980’s advancements were the Apple Macintosh personal computer, the IBM personal computer, Doppler radar and video games. The 1990’s advancements were the World Wide Web and HTML language. The 2000’s advancements were the portal music digital player and IPods. ( (External Link) .
