Abstract:

"Deborah Meier offers a fresh take on standardized tests. While others have criticized standards and what they measure. Meier rejects the very idea of a centralized authority that dictates how and what teachers teach. Standardization, she argues, prevents citizens - including teachers - from emerging as thoughtful, responsible adults, seriously engaged with shaping their own schools, classrooms, and communities. As a result, young people can't learn from them how to be thoughtful, responsible adults and good citizens, the primary goal of public education in a democracy."--Jacket.
