We Need More than "Educentric" Standards.
Spady, William G.
Educational Leadership, v53 n1 p82-83 Sep 1995
Rejects Matthew Gandal's characteristics of good standards (in the March 1995 "Educational Leadership") as overwhelmingly "educentric." Content standards that define what it means to be a good student within the traditional system will not prepare students for the rapidly changing future. Interdisciplinarity, competence, and authentic context are equally important. (MLH)
