Goals are stuck in edit mode - eeek!

Why is it that the goals are stuck in edit mode? I can edit the Description area in Space Details and then view the text in display mode. However, goals only display in edit mode. It is ideal to see the full text of the goal after entry. I'm not sure if you need to add an edit widget in here to toggle editing on and off or what, but this the viewing of goals currently is suboptimal.

    Here are my clarifications -
    When I refer to edit, what I mean is that I am in 'edit' mode and can make a change to the goal. However, if I want to see the entire goal I cannot, because it only displays in edit mode. I wish goals would display like the Space description, because I can edit it, but then when I'm done editing, it will display for viewing in it's entirety as if it were read only.
    I would recommend recreating this and to do so follow these steps:
    1, Create a new space
    2, Add a space description (notice how you can edit, but then also view the entire description)
    3, Add a goal or two (notice you only have edit capabilities, and if you want to see the entire goal, you cannot, because it doesn't show. Only one section of the goal shows at a time.)
