Judging Standards in Standards-Based Reform MS Word - Discussions of standards-based education reform are not all sweetness and light. Questions are raised about standards and their effects on children's education. This essay tries to provide a coherent way to think about issues and questions related to standards-based education reform. It focuses on the first step, which is developing the standards that educators and the public use to identify what students should learn. Having a set of criteria for evaluating these standards as they are developed provides a useful way to gauge the consequent reforms.
