Excerpt: The American people consistently rank education as a top national priority; they recognize education as being crucial to helping people secure jobs and become responsible, productive citizens. In recent years, the role of education has expanded beyond providing all children with a challenging academic experience to moving families from welfare to work, teaching children to avoid illegal drugs and alcohol, preparing a skilled workforce for our growing technology sector, and offering safe and supervised before- and after-school enrichment programs for children. President Clinton?s FY 2000 budget request seeks to strengthen education?s position to deal with these growing responsibilities. Built on the Department of Education?s (ED) previous success, this budget would allow us to continue to help states and communities move academic standards for all students into the classroom; create partnerships between schools, families, businesses, and community organizations; and greatly expand financial support for college students. Initiatives in FY 2000 would help reduce class size in the lower grades to just 18 students per class, recruit and train thousands of qualified teachers for the country?s booming student population, and use tax credits to build modern school buildings. ED?s programs would also help children read well by the end of the third grade and master challenging mathematics by the eighth grade. The programs would also promote professional development for teachers to use educational technology in the classroom, assist in providing programs during the out-of-school hours through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers, and encourage children and families to start planning early for college.
