A Step Backwards: An Analysis of the 21st Century Skills Task Force Report
Author(s): Jim Stergios — Publication date: 2009-02-17 Category: Education Abstract: On November 18, 2008, the 21st Century Skills Task Force presented a set of recommendations to the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) on why, how, and where to incorporate “21st century skills” in the state’s current academic standards and assessments for students and teachers. On December 16, the BESE agreed to ask the Commissioner and his staff at the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to develop an implementation plan. The DESE is expected to suggest a preliminary set of implementation priorities at the February BESE meeting, and to provide a more extensive response later this spring.
