Standards for a Democratic Republic: The Committee of Ten Revisited.
Sewall, Gilbert T.
Journal of Education, v176 n3 p17-27 1994
Recalls a previous attempt, via the Committee of Ten, to set national academic standards in American high schools 100 years earlier, describes the effort's defeat, and explains how the objections raised then are much like the ones being raised today. The author argues that the need for national academic standards is more urgent now than ever before. (GR)
