IQ Gap

Our society has an intelligence gap between the cognitive leaders and followers. It is a consequence of human biodiversity and a cultural meritocracy. The differences are not as obvious as the differences in physical height or strength, but they are just as real.

Hardly anyone dares to comment on the IQ gap because some superficial correlations with race and ethnicity makes many such comments offensive. And yet a major part of American education policy, No Child Left Behind has its main goal to close the gap among schoolchildren.

This site has links to scientific info and scholarly articles about the IQ gap. It does not take any position on continuing controversies, such as nature v nuture, other than a belief that true information can be enlightening.
