The Hearing before the Committee on Education and the Workforce was held May 20, 1999. The hearing lists statements by educators, elected officials, and the Colorado Commissioner of Education on the Academic Achievement for All proposal, the Straight A's proposal. This proposal gives states a choice: they can either continue operating federal education programs as before, or, at their option, they can combine certain K-12 federal education funds in exchange for strict academic accountability. Straight A's does not eliminate any K-12 programs and, in many respects, is modeled after Texas' successful state accountability system where performance and results are central. Appendices list written statements by the participants. (DFR)
