Silvernail, David L.
Educational Policy, v10 n1 p46-62 Mar 1996
Key components of American educational reformers' results-oriented strategies include creation of world-class standards, curriculum frameworks, and "voluntary" national tests. Similar reforms already exist in England under the 1988 Education Reform Act's mandated national curriculum and assessment system. This article describes the British experience and identifies potential lessons for American reformers. (22 references) (MLH)
