The Standards Movement: A Child-Centered Response.
Crain, William
Montessori Life, v15 n3 p8-13 Sum 2003
Discusses how child-centered educational philosophies, including Montessori, share positions differing radically from those of the educational standards movement. Focuses on adult-set goals and standards, social promotion, external motivators, demands for more challenging work, and standardized tests. Reports that children in child-centered programs score as well as students from conventional schools on standardized tests. Lists attitudes central to child-centered education for assessment, including interests, concentration, tranquility, independence, exuberance, and grace. (KB)
