Separate & Unequal: Use Test Scores To Improve Education--Not To Segregate Poor Learners.
Burley, Hansel
American School Board Journal, v188 n6 p28-30 Jun 2001
Disappointing high-stakes test results matter far less than the type of future citizens that schools produce. Citizenship values (teamwork, leadership, and neighborliness) are not assessed well by multiple-choice exams. Poor performers should not be segregated, data should be reinterpreted, and remediation should stress tutoring interventions, not retention. (MLH)
