Norton, M. Scott. (2016). Guiding Curriculum Development: The Need to Return to Local Control. Rowman & Littlefield, 15200 NBN Way, P.O. Box 191, Blue Ridge Summit, PA 17214-0191. Tel: 800-462-6420; Fax: 800-338-4550; e-mail: custserv@rowman.com; Web site: http://rowman.com/RL.

The main thesis is that student curriculum, and to a further extent, individual student’s academic achievement, need to be focused on the micro (local school) level rather than to be bogged down by federal (macro-level) bureaucracy that is too generalized and block potential advancements in the teaching field that would be achieved through a more individual, independent approach.
