Intelligence Policy: Its Impact on College Admissions and Other Social Policies
In Intelligence Policy, Angela Browne-Miller critically examines and clarifies the numerous elements of what she calls "implicit intelligence policies" - those unspoken, frequently invisible directives based on ambiguous assumptions that often profoundly influence social and educational policies. She analyzes the impacts of such assumptions regarding measured and actual mental ability on social policies by studying modern admissions practices at the University of California at Berkeley. Her pioneering work investigates the long-standing notions that exist behind social and corporate policies dealing with mental ability and addresses their potentially damaging consequences to a nation facing intense international economic competition.
