The State of State Standards 2006

The State of State Standards 2006
Source: Thomas B. Fordham Foundation
From press release: "Two-thirds of schoolchildren in America will return to class in coming weeks in states with mediocre (or worse) expectations for what their students should learn. Five years after No Child Left Behind made standards-based education reform the law of the land, a new study finds that the subject-by-subject state standards that undergird this reform strategy remain inadequate in most jurisdictions. The State of State Standards 2006, the first full review of such standards since 2000, confers an average grade of 'C-minus' -- the same as six years earlier -- even though most states revised their standards during that period."
