Standards for World History: What Do Students Most Need to Know?
Fonte, John D.
Journal of Education, v176 n3 p73-81 1994
Criticizes the National Standards in World History because they do not consider what American high school students need most to learn about world history given the limited time allotted to each subject. The author argues that the standards minimize the intellectual and political history of the West, poorly conceptualize the 20th century, and possess an anti-Western bias. (GR)
