Are Teachers Stupid?--Setting and Meeting Standards in Social Studies.
Nelson, Murry R.
Social Studies, v89 n2 p66-70 Mar-Apr 1998
Argues that the national standards movement is predicated on the notion that teachers are stupid. Criticizes the standards as being unworkable, often irrelevant, and emphasizing low-level data and memorization. Claims the standards are doomed to fail because they attempt to "teacher proof" the "right" information.(MJP)
