A wonderful paper by John Ewing: Mathematical Intimidation: Driven by the Data in the Notices of AMS. It is consonant with Gert Biesta‘s attacks on “evidence-based practice” in education, see his paper Why ‘‘What Works’’ Won’T Work:Evidence-Based Practice and the Democratic Deficit in Educational Research, Educational Theory 57 no. 1 (2007), 1–22.
