ABSTRACT
The article presents the comments of Pascal D. Forgione Jr. on the value of education standards in national and international standings and how they could be deployed to raise the bar for student achievement across the United States. As Delaware's state schools chief, he worked closely with school districts in the early 1990s in building an understanding of the relationship of student performance to well-developed, rigorous education standards by emphasizing the critical roles of core-curriculum frameworks. He stressed the importance of standards in guiding a diverse, urban school district and the challenges facing such large urban districts in meeting high performance standards in every classroom.
