ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the establishment on a set of standards for the K-12 public schools sector, under pressure from the U.S. Department of Education. The author is critical on the massive sets of reform standards which show that they are based on an empirical plot or field testing before its implementation. Also discussed is the authoritarianism of the standards movement as well as the recovery act, which aims to create jobs and lay the foundation for education reform.
