Biological Determinism and the Ideological Roots of Student Classification.
Selden, Steven
Journal of Education, v165 n2 p175-91 Spr 1983
Reviews works of several eugenists and student classifiers, focusing upon how earlier notions of differential biological worth were refined and reintroduced as bases for educational policy. Proposes that contemporary educators' emphasis upon student classification ignores historical relationships between biological determinism, student classification, and the issues of social justice and equality.
