Implementing State Standards for Science Education: What District Policy Makers Make of the Hoopla.
Spillane, James P.; Callahan, Karen A.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v37 n5 p401-25 May 2000
Explores school districts' responses to state science standards and examines the ideas about science education that district policy makers construct from these standards. A cause of failing to implement state science standards, rarely examined in the literature, concerns the ways in which local implementers miss or misconstrue the intent of policy proposals.
