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).

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).

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,

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
