This report describes state educational standards in effect for the 1989-90 school year and is the third report in a series that has tracked state standards since 1984-85. The first part of the report summarizes state educational standards for the 1989-90 school year and the changes that took place across the states between 1984-85 and 1989-90. The second part of the report contains individual profiles of each of the 50 states. These profiles present more detailed information on student standards (testing, high school graduation requirements, attendance, and other policies); teacher standards (teacher preparation, certification and relicensing, and staff development); school and school district standards (minimum length of the school year and school day, and curriculum requirements); and public school choice programs.
