The Onion asks for their In The Know: Are Tests Biased Against Students Who Don't Give A Shit?
Did a recognition of exactly this bias in testing serve as a foundation for the Supreme Court's Disparate Impact theory as first laid out in Griggs v. Duke Power? Hard to make rational sense of that court ruling. So I'm always on the outlook for an explanation. Surely the Supreme Court can't be senile old liberal fools, can they? Could a lackadaiscal attitude explain these observations? Or does the real explanation lie elsewhere?
Update: The Onion video embed HTML code I used above does not appear to work. So you have to click thru to watch the video. It is funny.
