NYT editorial: National School Standards, at Last

Much of the current consensus in the educational "reform" debate is noxious:
the pro-school shutdown approach, the extolling of charter schools while ignoring the cynical bias behind the student selection process, the 60 or 70 hour work-week demands at charter schools.
The goal of national standards is one thing that is worthy of support. We cannot have an outrageous patchwork of 50 standards. Obviously, it represents different standards in different states. We are a geographically highly mobile country. Different standards result in a jolting change for students that migrate from one state to another.

The New York Times' March 14, 2010 editorial endorsement for national standards.
