The introduction introduces the main themes of the book through a discussion of the issues that arise from pressures to raise test scores, decisions about allocating children to schools, and decisions about whether to group children in classrooms according to their prior level of performance, It shows that settling debates about these issues requires careful consideration both about what values really matter and about what the evidence shows (and what further evidence is needed). So the book aims to enrich the language and conceptual resources decision makers bring to these and other issues, and to help readers combine evidential and value considerations better.
