The intelligence–education relationship

  • February 1, 2016
    Intelligence is an important factor in how the individual responds to education. Those who have higher intelligence tend to perform better at school and go on to higher levels of education.This effect is also observable in the opposite direction, in that education increases measurable intelligence.Studies have shown that while educational attainment is important in predicting intelligence in later life, intelligence at 53 is more closely correlated to intelligence at 8 years old than to educational attainment.
