Although standards-based reform emerged in the United States and
the United Kingdom, the idea has spread across the world, as an
approach to systemic reform. It might appear that there is a
world-wide tsunami of standards-based reform that will standardize
and homogenize the educational system across the globe. This volume
makes it very clear, however, that there is no one approach to
standards-based reform and countries change " there is a danger in
paying attention to its evolution and impact in only one context.
That s what makes this volume so valuable. Louis Volante has drawn
together descriptions from a wide range of countries, all involved
in large-scale reform and using standards and assessments as part
of their process. What becomes very obvious is that the language
may be the same but the words reflect different contexts and can
represent very different ideals, values, and processes. I m sure
you will find this book as interesting and challenging as I have "
a gem that pushes your thinking and does not allow readers to
remain neutral. (Lorna Earl)
