Is a National Curriculum Coming to Kansas?

A long time ago I read a statement to the effect that in France, you could know what page of which textbook every student in the country had open on his or her desk. The statement was meant to illustrate the relatively more centralized nature of the French political system compared with the American.

The claim may or may not have been true, but one of the latest trends in education reform is towards national standards, which might lead, over time, to importing the French approach to America. I will be exploring this more in a new page on this site, called National Curriculum Standards.
