Content standards for K-12 curriculum (USA)
Content standards for K-12 curriculum USA
Many educators see the publication of the now-famous report A Nation at Risk (National Commission on Excellence in Education, 1983) as the initiating event of the modern standards movement.
Amid growing concerns about the educational preparation of the nation's youth, President Bush and the nation's governors called an Education Summit in Charlottesville in September 1989. That summit concluded with the establishment of six broad goals for education that were to be reached by the year 2000. The goals and their rationale are published under the title The National Education Goals Report: Building a Nation of Learners (National Education Goals Panel [NEGP], 1991).
The purpose of our project is to address the major issues surrounding content standards, provide a model for their identification, and apply this model in order to identify standards and benchmarks in the subject areas. McREL's standards database |
