Schooling and Success.
IRP Focus, v5 n3 p9-14 Sum 1982
Reviews Michael Olneck's investigations into competing views on the function of schooling in American society: (1) that education promotes an "IQ meritocracy," where intelligence and ability (indicated by testing and achievement certification) determine future material rewards/status; or (2) that the school system socializes individuals into preestablished roles in a stratified, capitalistic social hierarchy.
