Time to Stand Up to the National Standards Agenda

Instead of moving toward a system of rigid national standards, which would represent an unprecedented federal overreach into education, states should empower parents with information about school performance and increase transparency about academic achievement. And ultimately, parents should be able to use that information to choose a school that meets their child’s needs.
We know what works in education, and it begins and ends with parents–not the federal government.
