Beyond Standards highlights the structural conditions that have undermined the success of the standards movement and challenges us to confront them. The book offers an impassioned argument about the ways that our decentralized educational systems undermine the pursuit of educational equity and excellence.


Sobering though it is, Beyond Standards is essential reading, especially for those of us who see the implementation of high-quality instructional materials as a promising lever for improving student outcomes. Not all readers will agree with Polikoff's proposed solutions, but his diagnosis of the problem is spot-on. — Michael J. Petrilli, president, Thomas B. Fordham Institute
