Barbour, Michael; Evans, Mark; Ritter, Jason
Journal of Social Studies Research, v31 n1 p27-33 2007
After approximately two decades of using the Quality Core Curriculum, in 2005 the State of Georgia began the process of implementing the new Georgia Performance Standard. In this article the authors examine the strengths and weaknesses of this new curriculum, along with the proposed model of implementation. In this examination, the authors will attempt to situate both the standards and their implementation within the current political struggle over curriculum in the United States. (Contains 1 table.)
