Jensen, Arthur R.
Oxford Review of Education, v17 n2 p169-87 1991
Criticizes approach to equal education that seeks equality of outcome as well as equality of opportunity. Discusses Spearman's theory of g that attempts to explain individual differences in intelligence. Contrasts efforts at genuinely reducing equality of outcome, including Aptitude X Treatment Interaction, Mastery Learning, and Thinking Skills Training, with forced appearance of equality of outcome among different racial groups.
