"Diverging" American and Japanese Science Scores.
Bracey, Gerald W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n10 p791-92 Jun 2000
A book examining alleged American/Japanese test score divergences on the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) suffers from "naive anthropology" and "adult- centric" thinking. Thicker U.S. textbooks may be the real problem. School performance is probably not linked to a nation's economic failures or successes. (MLH)
