Standards at Crossroads after Decade


This article from EdWeek describes the growing movements opposing statewide standards movements, including the high-stakes tests and graduation requirements that are tied to many state standards. Author David Hoff cites situations in Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Texas, Virginia, and Oregon as examples of some of the progress made and obstacles faced by accountability and high-stakes testing movements. Hoff notes that opposition to statewide standards has grown as concerns about consequences -- as well as about accuracy and validity of tests -- have become more widespread.
