The Reform without Cost? A Reply to Our Critics.
Brewer, Dominic J.; And Others
Phi Delta Kappan, v77 n6 p442-44 Feb 1996
Responding to criticisms from James Gallagher, Richard Jaeger, John Hattie, and Robert Slavin, the authors contend that detracking creates both winners and losers. Policymakers face a tradeoff between helping low-achieving students and hurting high-achieving ones. The decision depends on how society weighs competing notions of equity and efficiency.
