Rabkin, Rhoda
Policy Review, n101 p67-71 Jun-Jul 2000
Reviews two books criticizing the use of standardized testing. Nicholas Lehmann considers selective college admission based on the Scholastic Assessment Tests (SAT) offensive, since such tests never tap innate abilities. Peter Sacks develops a broader critique not confined to the SAT. The books suggest that effective education reform depends upon building on the decentralization and experimentalism currently characterizing American education. (SM)
