Education Standards, Going National

Maryland and 45 other states announced Monday that they will develop common national standards for what should be taught in classrooms from kindergarten through high school in reading and math.

The agreement marks a major shift away from local control over curriculum, which allowed every school district to decide what was taught, to national standards and national tests. State Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick said both she and Gov. Martin O’Malley have signed the initiative, announced Monday by the National Governor’s Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers.

Good news, if a program for national standards is followed and taught equally everywhere.
