aAlthough standards-based reform emerged in the United States and the United Kingdom, the idea has spread across the world, as an approach to systemic reform. It might appear that there is a world-wide atsunamia of standards-based reform that will standardize and homogenize the educational system across the globe.

Thatas what makes this volume so valuable.

What becomes very obvious is that the language may be the same but the words reflect different contexts and can represent very different ideals, values, and processes.
