I agree with you in principle, but not in practice. The problem is that excessive amounts of time and effort are being directed towards said tests (not only on the part of the students, but more so that of the teachers).

Valvar Where is the increased correlation with eugenics? (302 comments)

If the government wanted to control population levles, then sure, this might be a good tool.

What it might do is make it easier to do so clandestinely *in theory*, but in practice that case seems unlikely.

Oh, and there is also this, somewhat simple summary which I think is fairly good at disarming the majority of the drivel that is usually heard in these debates: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M...
