If you are interested, this is not the first time that this theory has been put forward.
There is book titled "The Bell Curve". Here
that describes the book.
is a link to the book itself.
This was a scientific work. It points out the IQ differences by race. That may explain the different academic success rates for the various races. I
also think that environmental factors have a huge bearing on the success or failure of students.
The success or failure of any individual student of course is not predetermined. However, here in the US, African Americans are doing dismally in
public schools. Unless this trend is corrected, they are condemning themselves to being an underclass.
I don't believe that any government programs are going to correct this situation. I think that it all comes down to personal responsibility.
Don't have children out of wedlock. Finish high school and have a career before you choose to have children.
Stress the importance of education to your children. Read to your children. Help them achieve academic success to the best of their ability.
