The Educational and Political Implications of Curriculum Alignment and Standards-Based Reform.
Wraga, William G.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v15 n1 p4-25 Fall 1999
Examines major assumptions of curriculum alignment and standards-based reform. Both reforms are potentially long on political expediency but short on educational efficacy. Improved test scores do not necessarily signal curriculum improvement. Educators should become more politically active, practice professional disobedience, or pursue experiential, research-based alternatives. Contains 70 references. (MLH)
