Abstract:

"As we approach the fiftieth anniversary of the Supreme Court's 1964 desegregation decision in Brown v. Board of Education, the United States is still struggling to close the wide gap that separates the achievement of African American and Latino from white and Asian students. For the past half-century, reformers have wielded a range of strategies including desegregation, compensatory education, curricular reforms, and attempts to equalize funding. None has been completely successful." "Final Test tells the story of this new approach and of the great stakes involved for American children and the nation's public schools, if the states require children to pass tests for promotion and graduation, then they have a reciprocal responsibility to provide adequate resources for children to learn the materials on which they're to be tested." "Final Test shows how this implicit bargain is evolving into a set of explicit legislative principles, opening a new frontier in education policy and the next arena in the battle for civil rights. On the fiftieth anniversary of Brown, no story is more timely."--Jacket.
