The Educational Achievement Controversy.
Wolf, Richard M.; Lerner, Barbara
Public Interest, n72 p124-32 Sum 1983
Wolf contends that Lerner's article (based on Wolf's "Achievement in America") contains erroneous facts and interpretations and creates an incorrect impression of poor performance by American schools. Lerner replies that Wolf distorts data and ignores the issue of poor achievement by attributing decline in academic standards to "opportunity to learn." (Author/MJL)
