"Reminds me of Harrison Bergeron."

The REALLY sad thing is that this is exactly what "standards" do to our kids.

In some states they are a lowest common denominator that cheats the high kids. In other states (like CA) they are "world class" and are unattainable for low kids and only marginally attainable for average kids. The very notion of one-size-fits-all standards insures that whichever way you go a lot of kids get screwed out of getting an education that fits their abilities.
