Petrosky, Anthony R.; Delandshere, Ginette
English in Australia, n129-30 p30-38 Dec 2000-Feb 2001
Considers how the process of developing standards is similar to previous development efforts such as defining "objectives" and "competencies" just a few decades ago. Analyzes how such standard development processes when combined with high stakes tests place teachers in the position of implementing curricula designed by others. Considers the political backlash against the standards movement. (RS)
