The Seventh Bracey Report on the Condition of Public Education.
Bracey, Gerald W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n2 p120-36 Oct 1997
Mixed results for U.S. adults on the First International Adult Literacy Survey reveal the worthlessness of posting international test scores without considering cultural, social, and economic contexts. In the Third International Mathematics and Science Study, U.S. eighth-graders' performance was average, but fourth-graders' results were noteworthy. Job prospects for superlative students are iffy, and teacher success depends on context. (MLH)
