The Bell Curve: Some Implications for the Discipline and Practice of School Psychology
Abstract: The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life provides a provocative examination of the influence of intelligence in life outcomes and offers provocative suggestions for national policies, a number of which impact education, psychology, and the practices of school psychologists. This article responds to some of the issues discussed in the book: the nature of intelligence, its measurement, the importance of personal decisions in determining life outcomes, and the modifiability of intelligence in infants and young children.
