US public schooling is proof environment has very little to do with intelligence. Despite billions of dollars more than what other countries spend on education and despite being so wealthy that even the poorest of the poor have to actually try not to eat themselves into morbid obesity, the US is mediocre when it comes to grades, particularly math.


Our education system is shit compared to most first world countries--that's no a secret. Your expectation has been that more money means a better educational system, but the money isn't the issue--it's the methodology. Some of the most successful educational systems have children in school for significantly less time each day--we're too busy pumping the kids full of drugs instead of providing adequate recess and play for their development. So no, if anything, the example you provided supports the idea the environment has a huge influence on outcomes. Why do you think ADHD is on the rise?

Same as parents that invest more time in their children.




I heard American universities don't kick out failing students not sure how true that is but when I heard that I cringed


It depends. Some care about the money flow, while others reconsider the circumstances, and of course, the idea of last chances. Some students enrolled have not grown up to handle the pressures of college, which makes it all the more ridiculous when what magnet high school one goes to here depends on the performance in Middle School.

Most wouldn't I would rather my child be Autistic like me (high functioning) then normal personally but if I had a choice I would leave it to chance.

I see both Autistic people and neurotypical people equally I believe both have unique strengths.
My only issues ever with Autism have come from not having someone with it to guide me properly.

But each to their own I would love my own child to be like me ....or not either is fine

Reduce anything that would cause sensory issues and hug them.
Sensory issues go away eventually for some

Indeed. In some cases--especially severe ones--it is better a person never pass on their genes. I, myself, likely should not reproduce...but I plan to do it anyway.





True enough there are definitely severe cases of genetic imperfection that shouldn't be allowed to breed. But at the same time it's not like we can haul them in and sterilise them . And even we could I am not entirely sure I'd be okay with such a practise . Plenty of productive members of society deal perfectly well with their genetic shortcomings after all.

Besides who knows maybe there is some ticking time bomb in my own genes . And I'd like a shot at reproduction before I am neutered ya know. Not that it'll likely happen, my traits seem undesirable by the females of our species.

IQ tests will never be perfect they are flawed but it is what it is that doesn't change the results of this research though at all.

Oh yeah, don't read the article or bother with anything it's saying because it must be "Marxist".
