Addresses relationship between urban African American students' perceptions of schools and tests, exploring literature's treatment of cultural bias in tests, educational practices, schooling in general; test-related social, political, economic/vocational issues; fairness of testing as educational/social practice. Testing is biased toward "culture" of people (of any race) who do well on tests. Defining school's purpose is real problem. (MLH)
