Virginia's Version of Excellence.
Barth, Patte
American School Board Journal, v185 n3 p41,43 Mar 1998
Virginia Standards of Learning will not work for excellence or for equity. First, the big ideas of the disciplines get lost in the specificity; second, the rigidity in requiring students to meet standards at each grade level does not offer flexibility to schools and teachers to adapt time and instructional methods. Well-defined standards should be set at a few levels, rather than at every grade. (MLF)
