Beyond the Rhetoric: An Historian's View of the "National" Standards for United States History.
Stern, Sheldon M.
Journal of Education, v176 n3 p61-71 1994
Suggests there are flaws in the National Standards for United States History that could be detrimental to students. According to the author, in their pervasive present-mindedness and self-censorship, the standard's framers underestimate and ill-serve the students because the standards help develop a smug, superior, and self-righteous attitude toward people and conflicts of the past.
