Unequal By Design critically examines high-stakes standardized
testing in order to illuminate what is really at stake for
students, teachers, and communities negatively affected by such
testing. This thoughtful analysis traces standardized testinga
(TM)s origins in the Eugenics and Social Efficiency movements of
the late 19th and early 20th century through its current use as the
central tool for national educational reform via No Child Left
Behind. By exploring historical, social, economic, and educational
aspects of testing, author Wayne Au demonstrates that these tests
are not only premised on the creation of inequality, but that their
structures are inextricably intertwined with social inequalities
that exist outside of schools.
