Example #12873

When we don't acknowledge the enormous genetic influence on student outcomes at the group level, we end up blaming schools, and teachers, and administrators, and other well-meaning people who are trying very hard. It's considered cruel and racist to notice that racial differences in test scores occur in good schools and bad, rich districts and poor. No.  It is cruel and racist to blame decent educators who are doing all they can, yet are considered failures.
