About Testing for the Public

Testing for the Public's founder, David M. White, has been immersed in the study of standardized testing for 30 years. A graduate of Harvard Law School, he has published scholarly articles, written legal briefs, and testified before state legislatures and the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan in the case of Grutter v. Bollinger in 2001. As early as 1979, he testified before the New York State legislature urging passage of "Truth in Testing" legislation that would require admission tests to be made public.

He is a noted voice for greater equity in standardized testing. He has been a featured speaker at the national conventions of the Association of American Law Schools, the Society of American Law Teachers, and the National Conference of Black Lawyers.

In 1985 he founded Testing for the Public as a non-profit educational corporation. He has helped hundreds of business, law, and graduate school candidates prepare for the GMAT, LSAT, and GRE. He personally trains every instructor, so that every student gets the latest strategies.

National recognition began with Testing for the Public's first LSAT Strategy Course, as consumer advocate Ralph Nader greeted the eight students. He was intrigued by the non-profit course that "Discloses test taking strategies for which students previously had to pay big money, and goes the coaching schools one better by revealing new strategies known only to the testmakers themselves."

In addition to offering courses to the public, Testing for the Public has offered courses sponsored by UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC San Francisco, UC Santa Cruz, UC Riverside, San Francisco State University, California State University Fullerton, Chicago State University, Delaware State University, and York College of the City University of NY.
