Abstract

The article focuses on the amount and content of knowledge the students get from learning in schools and addresses the issue of equality in education. Certainly, a natural source of the tension between family and school is in the objective of education in their society. The common school is a source of standard and the family a source of difference. The common school is conceived to teach all students, including those from immigrant families, a common language and curriculum. Setting standards is about ensuring that all students learn a certain set of skills and concepts for an opportunity to participate in American life.
