How high is "high"?

Posted By: Dick Schutz on February 28, 2006
 
Neither Kosar nor Cooley can have looked at the "standards" they are referring to. The state standards are not grounded performance standards; they are ungrounded "Content Standards." For the most part the elements of content are rhetorical, and one can run fleets of instructional trucks through them. Under the circumstances, calling for "higher standards" is nonsense.
