Findings from the Literacy Scandal: "The Same Disconcert and Tremulousness and Meditation."
Freebody, Peter
English in Australia, n122 p10-14 Jul 1998
Comments on development of literacy "benchmarks" by the Commonwealth Government. Suggests that the benchmarks (1) will prove a highly productive discursive (and thus financial) context for some researchers, assessment organizations, and professional development teams; and (2) are a product of the melodrama of crisis, having no foundation in research or in a coherent view of language and literacy development.
