"This is not to say there were no standards however, they were scattered hither and yon throughout the nation with very few of them alike in any sort of a cohesive pattern. Through the efforts of Charles Hill there is now setup via the World Wide Web a site for the gathering together these various standards, organizing them as best they can be and categorize them into various groupings for example, Standards by Subject Area."
