The Window Dressing Behind "The Bell Curve."
Richardson, Tina Q.
School Psychology Review, v24 n1 p42-44 1995
Critiques the conceptual framework of "The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life." Concludes evidence is grounded in the classical tradition, which may be the case for some of their data, but conclusions and policy recommendations are based on assumptions and not grounded in data. Discusses limitations of scientific integrity of analysis and philosophical assumptions guiding analysis. (Author/JDM)
