The Achievement Crisis Is Real: A Review of "The Manufactured Crisis."
Stedman, Lawrence C.
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v4 n1 p1-11 Jan 1996
In "The Manufactured Crisis," D. Berliner and B. Biddle argue that there has been no decline in achievement test scores, that today's students outperform their parents and do well in international examinations, and that the supposed crisis in American education does not exist. This review refutes all these claims. (SLD)
