Report: the Republican Main Street Partnership agenda item:
Source: 2001 GOP Main Street Partnership Action Agenda for Education
    To help improve the federal role in education, the Republican Main Street Partnership has identified the following areas that should receive priority:

  • Require states to implement high standards of achievement in core subject areas, such as reading, math, writing, and science, for all students.
    Nearly all states have established high standards for education content in reading, writing and math. To continue to be eligible for Title I funds, we must ensure that states meet these standards.

  • Require states to demonstrate success in raising the performance of all students -- from those who score below basic to those who are already proficient -- and narrowing the gap between disadvantaged students and their more advantaged peers.
    Without regular assessments, we cannot determine how well students are achieving with respect to each state's performance goals. Although states are required to have assessments aligned with their content and performance standards by the 2000-2001 school year, it now seems that no state will be approved in time. To continue to be eligible for Title I funds, states must continue to work toward this goal and waivers must be provided only for those who are making substantial progress toward the implementation of their aligned assessments.

  • Establish a meaningful system of rewards for schools that significantly increase student achievement and sanctions for those that fail.
    Schools that consistently fail to make progress toward their stateís own performance goals, after assistance and opportunity to improve, must be sanctioned with corrective actions ranging from the reconstitution of the school staff to the authorization of students to transfer to another public school. Schools that meet or exceed their performance goals should receive monetary awards through a new grant program designed to reward achievement.
