Abstract

Is intelligence determined by genetic factors? Questions such as this are regularly being debated, a recent example having been an article by Toby Young on what schools can be expected to achieve in light of scientific evidence on cognitive ability. Leon Feinstein explains what science actually says, and, most importantly, what it doesn’t say about heritability.
