American Standards: Quality Education in a Complex World, the Texas Case
Raymond A. Horn, Joe L. Kincheloe
P. Lang, 2001 - Education - 402 pages
American Standards provides a greatly needed critical review of the Texas standards and accountability model as it effects students and teachers in public schools and higher education. As standards and accountability in education are promoted nationwide, American Standards provides a conversational and scholarly critique of standards in general, and specifically the incredible twenty-year-old Texas phenomenon promoted by the presidential campaign of George W. Bush.
