The Lyceum's Public Conference in October, 2005 focused on high school education in Texas. Few topics have such a profound effect on our society and our collective future. This conference brought together state, national and international experts in the field of high school education to discuss this critical issue.
High school is such a critical part of our educational process that should we fail there, we fail. The articles in this issue of the Lyceum Journal deal with knowledge, knowledge acquisition and the systems supporting that process.

This issue is divided into the following perspectives: the description of need/where improvements must be made; methods to achieve these improvements; and specific models and programs which target specific improvements.
