National and State Standards: The Problems and the Promise.
Marzano, Robert J.; Kendall, John S.
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n590 p26-41 Sep 1997
Although most teachers are aware of documents identifying standards in their subject areas, few know about "external" standards documents or the standards movement as a whole. Despite impressive lists of content standards, U.S. educators lack direction due to four major problems: multiple documents, too much information, controversial content, and different generality levels. Also, state efforts lack consistency. (41 references) (MLH)
