The Standards Juggernaut

author: Marion Brady
description: In this article from the May issue of Phi Delta Kappan, author Marion Brady examines common societal and educational beliefs about standards and about what students should be taught. As stated in the PDK summary of the article:

"It is hard to resist the notion that what is important is whatever we and our peers happen to know. But if we buy that simplistic idea, the clones we create will be poorly prepared to cope with changing reality, Mr. Brady points out."
