Goal 4 of the National Education Goals envisions that teachers will have access to programs for the continued improvement of their professional skills. This book examines what federal agencies are doing to enhance teacher preparation, presents information on career-long development, and offers program descriptions and contact names. The first section of the book introduces the subjects of professional development and federal assistance and describes formula and discretionary grant programs. The second section, which comprises most of the book, provides information on programs administered by the U.S. Departments of Education, Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Energy, Health and Human Services, the Interior, Justice, Transportation, and Veterans Affairs, and by independent agencies (Environmental Protection Agency, NASA, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Science Foundation, and the Smithsonian Institution). Nine appendices list additional sources of assistance; Appendix 10 provides a report of the Goal 4 Resource Group. (SM)
