Resisting Educational Standards.
Labaree, David F.
Phi Delta Kappan, v82 n1 p28-33 Sep 2000
Americans' commitment to local control, expanded educational opportunities, and form over substance have made standards a hard sell. Education is becoming a private good to serve consumers' individual interests, not a public good serving broader public interests. A consumerist approach to standards stresses schools' sorting function. (MLH)
