Educational Reform through the Implementation of National Standards: A Response.
Reynolds, Richard J.
Mid-Western Educational Researcher, v10 n1 p11-16 Win 1997
Development of voluntary, national standards as the basis for educational reform has generated considerable debate about such standards' desirability and the enlarged federal role in education. Examines arguments for and against national standards; assumptions and misconceptions underlying this approach; political considerations; and issues of local control, student diversity, resource inequities, consensus building, international competitiveness, and students as standardized "products."
