Calif. releases latest test scores
Same as it always is...

Despite decades of effort and billions of dollars in funding, test scores for white, Asian American and wealthier students are much higher than those of their black, Latino and low-income peers.


Hmm, I guess throwing money at the IQ problem doesn't work out so well.

We are different, but equal.

Why can't we just admit this.

Some races are clearly PHYSICALLY superior, right?

It is plain to see and we can all acknowledge this right???

Well guess what, some races are MENTALLY superior.

It is also plain to see yet, we CANNOT acknowledge this.

And therein lies the entire problem.

Liberals want equal outcomes - not equal opportunities. But when you have different abilities you will have DIFFERENT OUTCOMES.

The problem is, we are NOT EQUAL. Some are smart, some are stupid. Some are slow. Some are fast.

People are mentally superior because of their upbringing and resources. Not because of the color of their skin. This is some ignorant crap right here. You've been huffing too many balloons.

Asian parents make their kids study more.
White parents make their kids study more.
Studying leads to better test scores.

Twin studies proved you're wrong 50 years ago. But this is America. You're perfectly free to be ignorant.

False. Genetic IQ is a real thing.

There are a lot of studies that clearly demonstrate a difference in IQ ranges across racial populations. Don't be anti-science.

Family structure problem.

Mom is working - kid comes home - no parental guidance; nobody telling he can't ignore school.

Now Asian families, school is everything; two parents...family does everything together.

Anybody can do well on a scholastic test - you just have to put in the work. The more structured and strict the environment with regards to scholastics, the better the kid will do. They're not IQ tests. School test scores are "who studies and who doesn't" tests. It's math and English...not 17th century French poetry.

There is more to race than skin color.

That's some ignorant shite right there.

That is only partially true. We have as many, perhaps more, advantages due to the genetic lottery than our socioeconomic upbringing. For instance, identical twins who were raised separate, and in different socioeconomic situations, tend to experience the same amount of success in life. In terms of test scores, black students with household incomes north of 150k score about the same as white students with household incomes south of 50k.

Well we're puking resources like there's no tomorrow.

Maybe we should be teaching superior culture to all races?!

Honest question: do you believe that genetics play no part in intelligence and academic success?

Genetics relation to IQ is NOT causation?

What?

Cute. Using words you don't understand. The study didn't conclude causation one way or the other and certainly did not summarize that IQ differences were environmental

Then black kids should score highest. Mom isn't working. She's on welfare and busy making more kids.

Sounds like there are major cultural issues in the black community.

But that gets called racist too.

It's either genetic or cultural, it has to be one or the other or both, yet both get dismissed as 'racist'

I think genetics play a part in intelligence and academic success. I think environment plays a much bigger part. Parents with a high IQ are likely going to maintain an environment for their kids that helps them succeed. Parents with a lower IQ will have a tougher time doing that. Correlation without causation. The genetics aren't necessarily the cause, but there is a correlation.

Tests that test you on learned knowledge...are not IQ tests.
