Standards - Previous Revision

"NCTE has always maintained the stance of an independent critic throughout this process and continues to believe that we best serve our members and literacy learners by focusing efforts on helping teachers meet the challenges they face in the classroom rather than offering a summary judgment of these or other standards."

-- from the March 10, 2010, open letter to NCTE members from Jeff Williams, Chair, NCTE Review Team
