“The Department of Education and the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) today released The National Leadership Institute Toolkit: States Helping States Implement NCLB, a new toolkit designed to help states implement the technology requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act.”

http://www.setda.org/
“Founded in the fall of 2001, the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) is the principal association representing the state directors for educational technology. SETDA's goal is to improve student achievement through technology. Our mission is directed by three organizational principles 1) to promote national leadership in educational technology to support achievement in lifelong learning, 2) to provide professional development for state educational technology directors, and; 3) to build partnerships to advance learning opportunities.”

http://www.setda.org/nli2002/CD/SBR/sbr01.htm
Objective
To provide background information about Scientifically Based Research (SBR) as it applies to educational technology in K-12 schools, and to provide guidance for using existing SBR studies and planning SBR in state and district programs.

http://www.setda.org/nli2002/CD/tla/index.htm
Objective
To develop a shared definition of technology literacy as well as a set of criteria to benchmark it's presence at the eighth grade level. To identify a continuum of possibilities for assessing technology literacy.

http://www.setda.org/nli2002/CD/cde/index.htm
Objective
To identify a set of common data elements that will inform state progress on NCLB and will serve as a foundation for national comparisons regarding educational technologies.

http://www.ed.gov/pubs/CollegeForAll/growth.html
“The first point made by the critics is that people have come to believe that most or all high school graduates should go to college. Stanfield (1997), for example, observes that 96 percent of teenagers polled by the Public Agenda Foundation said that going to college was "important." This finding is certainly relevant, but it doesn't tell us how expectations have changed over the years or what kind of institution students have in mind when they refer to "college."
