    Class Struggle - Why 17-year-olds' scores have stalled since the '70s

    Wow. Is he suggesting that a student's attitude toward education is a factor in learning? :cool:

    There is very little point in having 'great teachers' if you don't have 'great students' and 'great parents'.

    I think a factor might be the demographic reality that the poor and uneducated have a higher birthrate. More responsible, educated people tend to practice better family planning. So, every decade you have a greater percentage of young people born into disorganized homes, often single parent ones, that lack a tradition and culture that values education and higher learning.
