Texas Education Review, v1 n2 p15-19 Sum 2000
Defends the significant increases seen in Texas student achievement during the 1990s, addressing attacks on the validity of these improvements. Supports the governor's emphasis on accountability testing because of its positive results, concluding that the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills holds students and schools accountable and provides teachers an incentive to convey basic knowledge and skills to students.
