The Little Standards That Couldn't.
Maloney, Henry B.
English Journal, v86 n1 p86-90 Jan 1997
Traces the public furor that greeted the National Council of Teachers/International Reading Association's "Standards for the English Language Arts." Discusses responses to criticisms. Argues that the language in the "Standards" is flat; the standards are meant to be guidelines, not mandates; and the emphasis was on process. (RS)
