On November 13, 2002, Achieve held a meeting of more than 100 national and state leaders from government, business and education to take stock of the nation's standards-based education reforms. That same day, Achieve released Staying on Course, an appraisal of the progress, prospects and challenges that states committed to standards-based reforms have taken on over the last half-decade. IBM Chairman Louis V. Gerstner, Jr., Achieve's co-chair, and Gov. Bob Taft of Ohio spoke at the event, which also marked Achieve's fifth year in service to the states.
