The Paradoxes of Desegregation: Race, Class, and Education, 1935-1975.
Baker, R. Scott
American Journal of Education, v109 n3 p320-43 May 2001
Uses the African American campaign for equality and access to explore the historical origins of high-stakes testing. Explains that instead of promoting equality, as proponents of standardized tests argued, greater reliance on such tests widened the distance between advantaged and disadvantaged African American students, shaping paradoxical patterns of inclusion and isolation.
