Standards in Education: An Up-Date.
Duhamel, Ronald J.; Duhamel, Carolyn S.
Standards in education have generated a great deal of dialogue. Many people who debate the question of standards in schools do not understand the term well; they do not know precisely what it is that has supposedly fallen or risen. In Ontario, even though there is not a great deal of evidence to indicate whether standards are rising or falling, and even though one must look carefully at the research which has been conducted in this field, there is some proof available which suggests that standards in elementary and secondary schools are as high, and probably higher, in a number of disciplines, than they have been in the past, in spite of the fact that there are a couple of problem areas.
