    there is growing evidence that self-regulation or self-control
    abilities may have as much effect on academic and
    other life outcomes as IQ.

    As a teacher I've noticed this for many years now. Kids who can behave themselves in class out perform those who can't behave. Seems to me that if this is the case, then learning to behave should be the most important thing taught in schools.

    Of course in the US we don't try to teach behavior, We just try to teach teachers how to manage bad behavior so that we can produce marginally educated deviants.

    So does Eladar believe that female students academically outperform male students because
    female students behave better?

    So does Douchebag always type in such a condescending manner?

    As to the question, ignoring the troll style in which it was written, there is little doubt that girls' behavior adds to their superior academic performance compared to their male counterparts. This would also add to girls doing better in school.

    Girls' strengths in reading and writing are generally more useful when it comes to education compared to a guys' strengths in spacial ability and mathematics.

    What measures would you prefer the State run schools employ to teach us all how to behave?

    I was going to answer the troll's question but your response was much better than what I thought up.

    My earlier question was based on a logical extension of what Eladar wrote.
    Why does Eladar apparently believe that his insults can conceal his general idiocy?

    "...guys' strengths in spatial ability and mathematics."
    --Eladar

    From an earlier thread (where Eladar ignored this), according to the American Enterprise
    Institute (a right-wing American website), on the 2015 SAT the average scores in mathematics were:
    White females: 518
    White males: 551
    Asian females: 585

    Eladar may like to boast that white males were 33 points superior to white females, but
    how would he explain that white males were 34 points inferior to Asian females?

    Gotta be at least 20 or more over the past 15 years. Maybe a lot more, dunno, I never kept count.

    Try comparing apples to apples and oranges to oranges. In case you don 't know what that means, try comparing Asian girls to Asian guys. In the same way you can compare white girls to white guys.

    When it comes to blacks, I think you will find that black girls out perform black guys. This is explained by the fact that guys suffer more from a bad environment. In the same way, guys excel more due to a good environment.

    Why does Eladar apparently believe that it's unfair to compare white students to Asian students in the USA?
    Would Eladar say that whites are supposed to be intrinsically inferior to Asians in mathematics?

    And regarding Eladar's ignorant claim that 'black girls out perform black guys', the
    American Enterprise Institute (right-wing American website) reports that on the 2015 SAT in math:
    Black males scored 435, black females scored 422 on average.

    You really must have been a very hard worker in school.

    Only a moron would think that I was saying that it is unfair to compare whites to Asians. I just said it was idiotic to compare race and gender simply as gender.

    I think I've said it many times that Asians have a higher IQ than whites when comparing groups. Make of that what you will about what that means intrinsically when comparing individuals. You will of course come to an incorrect understanding, but that's just you being you showing how little you actually understand.

    Eladar refuses to admit that he's wrong in claiming that black females performed better than black males in mathematics.

    I did not claim that it was a fact.

    You continue to be a douchebag.
