This article came out a few days ago from the NYT. It's something that could make our lives easier at the Master Planning and Exhibit Development level as we work to reinforce local vs. national education standards with exhibits.
"The new proposals could transform American education, replacing the patchwork of standards ranging from mediocre to world-class that have been written by local educators in every state."
This is an ambitious goal and we hope that they are successful in making it work... and work well.
PS: as with any suggestion of systemic change there comes debate in case you have the time.
