Quote of the Day

“The push to enhance rigor and standards behind the high school diploma is seriously flawed. Any gains come at the expense of other goals for high school reform, including equity, curricular relevance, and student interest. [Discussions of] “rigor” too often use a narrow definition that neglects higher-order-thinking skills, applications of learning in unfamiliar settings, and academic depth in favor of breadth….Keener attention to helping students acquire more-sophisticated levels of understanding, including higher-order-thinking skills, and to ensuring that they can apply learning in unfamiliar settings [is needed].”

—W. Norton Grubb & Jeannie Oakes from “‘Restoring Value’ to the High School Diploma.” Reviewed in Education Week, October 2007
