Failure of the Standards Movement – Research and Opinion by Larry Stedman

  • We should be educating through vibrant, democratic communities, where students and teachers work together to solve real social problems. We need schools that allow students to develop their imagination and intellectual passions. As Einstein said, “accumulation of material should not stifle the student’s independence.” We want students to be well read, not just read well. In an increasingly diverse society, we need students who relate well to others and know well the people, struggles, and literary works that have shaped our multicultural nation. We need a school culture that is intellectually engaging and personally supportive.
