6. Then how come the SAT was called the SAT Reasoning Test?

Wikipedia:

Since it was debuted by the College Board in 1926, its name and scoring have changed several times; originally called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, it was later called the Scholastic Assessment Test, then the SAT I: Reasoning Test, then the SAT Reasoning Test, then simply the SAT.


Also, not just those who can "pass a test" get the better teachers/schools; as someone who went to public schools from kindergarten to college I'm not sure where you're getting this idea about public schools being "ability grouped". Some kids are stuck with shit schools due to circumstances beyond their control (low funding, bad parents, etc.) They do become easy targets for scammers, grifters, and other promoters of bad ideas.
