The source document is: Intelligence Research: Fifty Years of Satisfaction by Douglas K. Detterman
Among his observations in the original slide presentation:
Schools and teachers account for very little of the variance in academic achievement and should not be the focus of improving academic achievement
All psychological traits show significant and substantial genetic influence (with the caveat that no trait is 100% heritable)
Heritability is caused by many genes of small effect (no single silver bullet)
Fifty year forecast: The internet revolution and automation will continue at a quickening pace.
40% TO 60% of current jobs will disappearPeople who manage the flow of information will also be affected
A large portion of these jobs will be held by people with IQs less than 115 (85th percentile)
Employment dislocation will be widespread and rapid
No more than 7% of variance between students can be attributed to schools and teachers.
It doesn't matter where you go to college
Human capital can only be improved by focusing on individual students and their capabilities, not by focusing on schools and teachers.
