A British study has found that the biggest factor in a child’s educational success is the level of the father’s education. That is, if the father is well-educated, his children are likely to do well in school. And the father’s lack of education also manifests itself in his children not doing well. The mother’s education is a factor, but not nearly as much as the father’s.
Is this just another example of a study proving what is self-evident and obvious? So that fathers who value education make their kids study? Or is there more to this correlation?
