Commentary on Some of the Empirical and Theoretical Support for "The Bell Curve."
Kranzler, John H.
School Psychology Review, v24 n1 p36-41 1995
Commentary discusses two components of "The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life." First, evidence is presented demonstrating central role intelligence plays in American life; second is Spearman's g, the general factor underlying individual differences involving cognitive ability. Concludes that data does not provide unequivocal support for policy recommendations because educational and public policy should be based on more than psychometrics and statistics. (Author/JDM)
