A New Year’s Wish List By Charlotte K. Frank, Ph.D., SVP, Research and Development, McGraw-Hill Companies
I look forward to the actions the new Secretary of Education in continuing and modifying where necessary our focus on accountability and standards. I have every confidence that he will achieve for the young people of the United States, as a whole, what he is achieving in Chicago.
I also look forward to a renewed emphasis on science, the arts, as well as health and physical education if we are to bring our students to the forefront in the world of education. This clearly is in addition to the recently publicized pre-K – early childhood initiative because as the “twig is bent that is how the tree will grow”.
My congratulations to Secretary Arne Duncan and my every wish for his success because his success is our success.#
