Wonder how the analysis checks out empirically?

|Good review, Michael! Convinced me to buy the book, which doesn't happen very often with TCR book reviews. The ECLS-K database provides a means for checking out the effects of Rothstein's vaiables on student learning. The achievement tests are lame, for the reasons you say Rothstein gives. But they are adequate for this purpose. And the database includes a whole pot of socio-cultural-racial variables.|
I tried to email you, but there's a glitch between TCR's automated system and my computer. I'm interested in learning more about your company.
