How Texas Rewrote Its Social Studies Standards: A Case Study
A lot of people are talking about The New York Times story on how Texas revised its social studies standards. (You might remember that process got just a tad controversial recently.)
Read what Eduwonk has to say about it (the blog provides lots of good links to other commentary as well). Former Gates Foundation education biggieTom Vander Ark shares thoughts (and a fun headline) as well over at VA/R Partners.
Those of you who want to dig in can check the Texas Education Agency's Web site for links to the proposed revisions.
