my take is that the right isnt against standards as such... they just
want the standards to meet their party line. ie. they have been
hypercritical of the social studies standards because any attempt to
write standards that emphasis critical thinking rather than fact
memorisation gets their worldview all in a huff. there is also the
whole gabler textbook thing as well.
