     Room 2411.  Just across the street (south) from the National
     Air & Space Museum.  Parking can be difficult.  The L'Enfant

     *******************************************
     PROJECT BELOW
     A NEW ONE-STOP WEB SITE for teaching & learning resources was

     announced today by Secretary Riley.

     The web site, "Federal Resources for Educational Excellence,"
(FREE)
     offers...

     *  quick access to hundreds of teaching & learning
     resources across the federal government.

     *  a place where teachers, federal agencies & other
     organizations can begin forming partnerships to develop new
resources
     for teaching & learning.

     *  information about an effort to support partnerships of
     federal agencies & teachers, as well as other organizations,
to
     develop Internet-based learning resources & Internet-based
learning
     communities.

     We in the Department of Education have had the honor & good
fortune to
     work on this, during the past 9 months, with dozens of
talented,
     committed individuals in more than 35 federal agencies.  They
have
     given countless hours to help develop this web site.

     We want to thank these individuals, collectively known as the
FREE
     working group.  And on behalf of the FREE working group, we
invite you
     to visit the site, explore it & tell us what you think.  Our
hope is
     that this is just a first step!

     The FREE web site is at:
     http://www.ed.gov/free

     A press release announcing the web site is below.

     ********************************************* Riley Announces
New
     One-Stop Web Site for Teaching & Learning Resources (April 8,
1998)
     *********************************************

     Hundreds of federal resources for teaching & learning can now
be found
     at one web site, U.S. Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley

     announced today.

     "This new web site, *Federal Resources for Educational
Excellence*
     (FREE), offers one-stop shopping for a treasure trove of
historical
     documents, scientific experiments, mathematical challenges,
famous
     paintings, and other tools for teachers & students," Riley
said.

     A search of the web site produces dozens of resources for
teaching &
     learning from more than 35 federal agencies. Thousands of
topics can
     be searched -- the Civil War, the
     Constitution, photosynthesis, condensation, immigration,
Picasso,
     Jefferson, Henry David Thoreau, Mary Cassatt, Jackie
Robinson, the
     Amistad Case, the America Reads Challenge, famous FBI cases,
     cartography, genealogy, the Renaissance, calculus
simulations, "today
     in history," the human genome project, epidemiology, "the
African
     American odyssey," the solar system, the microbe zoo, and
others.
     Resources can also be viewed in 12 subject areas.

     "More than 35 federal agencies have collaborated for nearly a
year on
     this effort," Riley said.  "Their work -- this web site - -
offers a
     glimpse of how government can use technology to serve
citizens in ways
     barely dreamed of a decade ago."

     The FREE site was developed in response to a directive
President
     Clinton issued nearly a year ago.  It can help make
compelling online
     resources available in every school, which is part of the
president's
     Technology Literacy Challenge.  The four goals of this
challenge are:

     *   All teachers will be trained to help students learn
through
     computers & the information superhighway;

     *   All students & teachers will have access to modern
     computers;

     *   All schools & classrooms will be linked to the
information
     superhighway; and,

     *   High-quality software & online resources will be part of
the
     curriculum in every school.

     "FREE is just a first step," Riley said.  "And it is more
than just
     another web site.  It is a place where federal agencies &
teachers can
     begin forming partnerships to develop additional
high-quality,
     standards-based resources for teaching & learning."

     To that end, the Education Department today announced support
for up
     to seven partnerships of federal agencies & teachers, as well
as other
     organizations.  Each partnership will develop two products:

     *   A set of Internet-based learning resources organized
around
     a particular topic & tied to challenging academic standards.
A set of
     resources might include, for instance, student activities,
teaching
     ideas, primary documents, artifacts, scientific tools, and
data sets;
     and,

     *   An Internet-based learning community -- a community of
     teachers, students & others who use & contribute to that set
of
     resources.

     Proposals must be submitted by federal agencies on behalf of
each
     partnership & must be received by May 19, 1998.  The
invitation
     requesting proposals & the complete application are at:
     http://www.ed.gov/free/980406.html

     Teachers & organizations interested in participating are
invited to
     post a message on the "Looking for Partners" area of the FREE
web
     site, at:
     http://www.ed.gov/free/partner.html

     The FREE web site is at:
