Abstract

Failure rates observed (13 ± 6 percent for school failures, 17 ± 5 percent for scores below 95 on a collective IQ test) were far below those expected from the social class of birth (55 percent, 51 percent) or observed in a control group (56 ± 8 percent, 49 ± 9 percent) but close to those expected from the social class of adoption (15 percent, 15 percent).
