International Influences on the NCTM Standards: A Case Study of Educational Change.
McLeod, Douglas B.; And Others
The NCTM Standards have multiple origins. In part they developed out of concerns from NCTM committee members about textbook adoption policies that favored traditional texts. They also constituted a response to the public furor caused by "A Nation at Risk" and instantiated the 1980 recommendations on curriculum in "An Agenda for Action." International curriculum and research projects also influenced the NCTM Standards. The initial NCTM emphasis on standards as accountability criteria shared certain similarities with the National Curriculum effort in England and Australia, where reform is reportedly stalled. The more recent view of the "Standards" as aspiration may help extend the duration of their influence. (Author)
