    President's & Secretary's Priorities, January 2000; quoted on the US Department of Education's web site

    Good teachers have standards in mind when they set their lessons up, where the idea of a "standard" represents a specific idea of what the teacher expects a student to recall, replicate, manipulate, understand, or demonstrate at some point down the road - and of how the teacher will know how close a student has come to meeting that standard. Standards, in other words, are conceptually nothing new - but they did receive a new emphasis over the last decade, through various state initiatives and through the passage of the Goals 2000: Educate America Act. The growth of the Internet has given us the chance to index the sources of information about standards in one place and place that information at anyone's electronic fingertips. We have established this page as a repository for as much information about educational standards and curriculum frameworks from all sources (national, state, local, and other) as can be found on the Internet. If you know of a site that is not listed here, please send that information.
