Federal Resources for Educational Excellence Posted by Hello

We've regularly featured links to Federal Resources for Educational Excellence, "... a working group of more than 30 Federal agencies formed in 1997 to make hundreds of Federally supported teaching and learning resources easier to find."

To give you some idea of the depth and breadth of these resources, I direct your attention to the Educational Technology page, which includes departments such as the Parents Guide to the Internet, a primer on the Internet for parents; the Virtual Reference Desk, which connects people with people who can answer questions and support the development of skills; Global Science and Technology Week, which suggests how schools and communities can generate excitement about disciplines that underpin breakthroughs in medicine, space exploration, and much, much more.

But that's not all: Agencies and organizations participating in the FREE working group run the gamut from the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation to the The White House, 51 in all.

Whether you're in school, or the parent of student, or a teacher, or just interested in education, or would like to see what good the Government can do, for a change, you will be well rewarded by spending time at the Federal Resources for Educational Excellence website.
