The article examines the connection between the tenets of religious fundamentalism and current educational policy in the U.S. The prevailing standardized accountability movement dominating public schools in the country has been scrutinized through economic, educational, and political viewpoints, with several critiques finding the current system deficient. Fundamentalism takes on a perceived crisis or danger as well as a powerfully rigid, limited discourse.
