The debate over whether "schools make a difference" touched off by Christopher Jencks'"Inequality" continues to flourish. In this issue, a summary of the Jencks' book and the views of some of its critics are presented. Bird's-eye critiques are given by Alice Rivlin, ten black social scientists, including, among others, Ronald Edmonds, Stephen Michelson, Lester Thurow, Kenneth Clark, James Coleman, and Beverly Duncan. Reference is also made to several articles on Jencks'"Inequality" by several well-known spokesmen for social and educational issues. (SB)
