From Here to a Coherent and Explicit Intelligence Policy

  • Angela Browne-Miller
Part of the Environment, Development, and Public Policy book series (EDPP)


Whatever course of evolution college admissions and other selection policies take, they will serve as a meter of the evolution of all the implicit assumptions, tensions, and unwritten policies behind them. This meter must be read with ever-watchful eyes. All opportunities for the development of an explicitly articulated intelligence policy must be accepted as a challenge for the betterment of all social policy.
