Will Standards Save Public Education

 

Category: Education

 


Author:
Deborah Meier

 

Copyright/published Year: 2000 by Beacon

 

ISBN: 0807004413

 

Binding: paperback


Description:
Acclaimed educator Deborah Meier offers a fresh take on standardized tests. While others have criticized standards and what they measure, Meier rejects the very idea of a centralized authority that dictates how and what teachers teach. Standardization, she argues, prevents citizens-including teachers-from emerging as thoughtful, responsible adults, seriously engaged with shaping their own schools, classrooms, and communities. As a result, young people can't learn from them how to be thoughtful, responsible adults and good citizens, the primary goal of public education in a democracy.
