Washington--The Education Department has established toll-free telephone lines for callers who want to obtain a copy of President Bush's America 2000 strategy for reforming the nation's schools.

The receptionists who are fielding the calls are not trained to answer specific questions about the plan, but will refer callers to other offices within the department.

Those who call between 5 P.M. and 8 A.M., Eastern daylight time, can leave a message on a recording and will receive a call back.

The recording also gives callers a chance to answer a number of questions, including ones on what they think of the strategy and if and how they would like to help reform America's schools.

Secretary of Education Lamar Alexander said the toll-free lines "will take the President's program directly to the American people."

Mr. Bush and Mr. Alexander unveiled the strategy April 18 at a White House news conference. (See Education Week, April 24, 1991.)

The telephone number is: (800) usa-learn, or (800) 872-5327. Those living in the Washington area should dial (202) 401-2000.--mp
