Why Massachusetts and California Must Regain Control Over Their Academic Destinies Author(s): Sandra Stotsky and Ze’ev Wurman — Publication date: 2010-07-30 Category: Education Abstract: The case for national standards rests in part on the need to remedy the inconsistent and inferior quality of many state standards and tests in order to equalize academic expectations for all students. The argument also addresses the urgent need to increase academic achievement for all students. In mathematics and science in particular, the United States needs much higher levels of achievement than its students currently demonstrate for it to remain competitive in a global economy.
