Standards for Student Performance. ERIC Digest, Number 81.
Markham, Kelly
Many educators believe that if the United States is serious about reforming the nation's educational system, schools must implement high standards for student achievement that stress performance. While there is some disagreement over what form standards should take, there is consensus that expectations for achievement should cut across subject areas and support active learning and critical thinking. The development of standards should be a communal process involving many voices, with their implementation tailored to local reform efforts. Adopting standards ensures that poor students are given the same educational opportunities as their more affluent counterparts. (Contains 13 references.) (MLF)
