In a lecture dedicated to Barbara Biber, Perrone offers a brief perspective on her work and then discusses the Standards movement at the time - 1999. This essay offers a criticism of the movement and how it is far removed from the individual learning experience. Standardization dominated educational discourse at the time and continues to do so now.
