Neb. Panel Issues Ed. Guidelines
The Nebraska Education Policy Commission, appointed by Gov. Charles Thone in September, has recommended guidelines on "student competencies" for voluntary use by the state's schools.
The report says Nebraska schools should work to ensure competence in communication, computation, reasoning, responsibility (by teaching of economics and civics), arts and humanities, physical and mental health, and "learning to learn" as a lifelong process.
