Facebook Find - Education Week: National Standards Gain Steam

Education Week: National Standards Gain Steam

Source: www.edweek.org

National standards—once the untouchable "third rail" of American education policy—now have the backing of the nation’s governors, a growing number of education leaders, and the U.S. secretary of education.


I say let's take this a step further. Whether American's like it or not we're moving toward a globalization at lightning speed. Let's jump forward and begin working on International standards. Comparing how students across a City (ie NYC standards) is powerful, comparing how they're doing across a state is more powerful, comparing how they're doing across the nation is even more powerful, but more meaningful than any of that is where we stand globally.
