Places Everyone! IQ Heritability, Ideology, and Education.
Tucker, William H.
Journal of Educational Thought/Revue de la Pensee Educative, v32 n3 p217-236 Dec 1998
Presents social scientists' claim that IQ scores can determine a person's social, educational, and occupational future at an early age. Echoes the Platonic idea that each individual should be put to the use for which nature intended, and that IQ, which is thought to be hereditary, can effectively predict this use.
