The Genetics of Staying in School
One reason is to look at how genes and environments interact.“If you did a study like ours 100 years ago, the strongest genetic predictor of education would be how many X chromosomes you had, because society was set up in a way that it was much harder for women to get educated than men,” says Benjamin. Likewise, many of the genes that are associated with education today are likely important “because of how today’s educational system is set up. It requires people to sit at desks for hours, and listen to instructions from a teacher. People who get restless, or are less obedient to authority, will fare less well in that environment.”

I would love to know how this happens. Do the teachers not understand what the exam boards want? Is there total incompetence on the part of the college?

Educators replace "MS Office training course" with proper GCSE computer course. Are astounded when numbers drop.
Seems obvious we need to educate people both how to use computers, and how to fully understand them. Plenty of space for both types of course.
