John Paul Fullerton reported on his efforts to validate research about
changes in the social environment of our schools and my earlier comments
about the bogus nature of this study.
The topic is discussed completely in D. Berliner's mrecently published
"The Manufactured Crisis". Anyone interested in looking at how "data"
becomes accepted, from article to congressional testimony to commonly know
"fact" as well as an interesting review of research about the
effectiveness of American education would benefit from Berliner's work.
