Gee, I wonder…

Education was rated by N = 71 experts as the most important cause of international ability differences. Genes were rated as the second most relevant factor but also had the highest variability in ratings. Culture, health, wealth, modernization, and politics were the next most important factors, whereas other factors such as geography, climate, test bias, and sampling error were less important. The paper concludes with a discussion of limitations of the survey (e.g., response rates and validity of expert opinions).

You can’t educate a dunce into a genius.

Note that the countries with the best of many of those factors? Have the highest IQs too. Almost like IQ is causing some of them….
