Lawyers and Courts as Architects of Educational Policy: The Case of Minimal Competence Testing.
Getz, Jon E.; Glass, Gene V.
High School Journal, v62 n4 p181-86 Jan 1979
The authors critique legal arguments which have been used by attorneys, especially Merle S. McClung of the Center for Law and Education, in opposing minimum competency testing programs in the schools. The arguments mainly concern the 14th Amendment, racial discrimination, and the denial of due process. (SJL)
