(1) The Legislature finds that:
(a) In order to continue the pursuit of the good life in Nebraska, a common statewide vision must be refined to address the potential of all students across the state; and
(b) Individuals and businesses making reasoned decisions about where to locate often place the quality of education as one of the primary considerations. Quality education not only serves as an indicator of the current quality of life in a community but also as a determinant for what lies ahead.
(2) It is the intent of the Legislature to focus educational resources from all sources in our state toward a common statewide vision for the future through collaborative efforts to achieve the best possible results for all Nebraskans, our communities, and our state.
