A Think Twice Review of:
The State of State Standards 2006
Think Twice - Sep 11, 2006
Publisher/Think Tank - Fordham Institute
The report assigns grades to the academic content standards in each state and claims that higher content standards lead to better student test scores.
Reviewer(s) - Kenneth Howe, University of Colorado
In his review of the report, Howe finds no evidence to support the validity of the grades and also found no support for the report’s claim that higher content standards lead to an increase in student achievement.
