"Reflections on a quarter century of standards-based reform"

Standards-based reforms have been a central component of state and federal education policy for over two decades. Starting in the states and spreading to the federal government through No Child Left Behind and the Every Student Succeeds Act, these reforms were intended to strengthen the instructional core of teaching and learning in America's schools. And while they have produced some successes, they have also caused unintended consequences and met growing resistance. This lecture offers a synthesis of a quarter century of research on standards-based reforms and argues that, despite our best efforts, standards have only barely reached inside the classroom door. The talk poses key questions for research and policy as the standards agenda moves forward in the states.
