"Testing While Black": Standards-Based School Reform and African American Learners.
Townsend, Brenda L.
Remedial and Special Education, v23 n4 p222-30 Jul-Aug 2002
The impact of standards-based school reform practices on African American learners, especially those in special and remedial classes, is examined. A rationale is presented for standards-based reform that is culturally responsive and not premised on high-stakes, along with recommendations for school reform that focus on accountability while promoting cultural responsiveness.
