___________________________________________________________________________
      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of historical documents, scientific experiments, mathematical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:
