G is for Genes: The Impact of Genetics on Education and Achievement
G is for Genes shows how a dialogue between geneticists and educationalists can have beneficial results for the education of all children-and can also benefit schools, teachers, and society at large. Draws on behavioral genetic research from around the world, including the UK-based Twins' Early Development Study (TEDS), one of the largest twin studies in the world. Offers a unique viewpoint by bringing together genetics and education, disciplines with a historically difficult relationship. Shows that genetic influence is not the same as genetic determinism and that the environment matters at least as much as genes. Designed to spark a public debate about what naturally-occurring individual differences mean for education and equality.
