"The authors explain that the findings do not imply that educational achievement is genetically pre-determined, or that environmental interventions are not important, but rather that recognising the importance of children's natural predispositions may help improve learning."

science still needs donations and funds in order to conduct additional studies. To come right out and blatantly state that the bell curve is correct is professional suicide.
