[QUOTE=chipset;33948268]I'm pretty sure there's more to IQ than just pattern recognition.[/QUOTE] It is almost completely logistics
[QUOTE=Clementine;33948260]IQ isn't learned information, its pattern recognition.[/QUOTE] IQ is a measure of how fast you can learn. Someone with a low IQ isn't "dumb" they just take longer to learn. Someone with a high IQ isn't "smart", they just learn faster.
[QUOTE=Groat;33949720]In the American education system, it's the exact opposite! And homeschooling makes it even worse![/QUOTE] Dunno why people are rating this dumb/disagree. It's actually true, albeit hyperbole. I wouldn't be surprised if there is no correlation between IQ and school, were it that the study had been done on U.S. students in public schools. The Norwegian education system is ahead of the U.S. by leaps and bounds. In the U.S. the majority of education focuses on rote memorization--and that's it. Logic is not taught. Children don't learn how to learn, they don't learn how to think; their entire education is based around the memorization of facts. That is why there is such a low level of reading and mathematics skills in the U.S. compared to essentially every other first-world nation. Well, that along with the introduction of standardized testing with NCLB; it only exacerbated the issue. With that, teachers could no longer teach, they were forced to introduce even more rote memorization. This was especially detrimental to English and History subjects, as they're forced to cover a very limited list of subjects on a strict timeline to prepare for the test--instead of teaching what they deem most important and at the pace of the children in the class--otherwise the school is revoked all federal aid.
[QUOTE=Lufttygger306;33951953]No, it can not; a person with a knife can kill people[/QUOTE] nu uh you can trip and fall onto it if it's standing point-up or something
[QUOTE=JaegerMonster;33948204]Gee, more time spent memorizing information increases your score in a test that measures learned information??[/QUOTE] Have you ever taken an IQ test? What kind of 'learned information' does intuitive thinking employ? It's not like an IQ test asks you about the capital of Brazil or any such factoid, it's based on abstract thinking and reasoning skills, including pattern recognition as previously stated. Edit: I love the replies in this thread. For all you asking 'this is obvious why did they need to study this', those saying 'nuh uh school doesn't make you smart' are your answer!
Sounds fake to me.
These results are obviously biased :v:
This study was done in the Norwegian school system Do it in the American school system and I doubt you'll get the same result
[QUOTE=Zeke129;33953635]This study was done in the Norwegian school system Do it in the American school system and I doubt you'll get the same result[/QUOTE] new study finds that increased time spent in school results in students "talking like fags" and "acting like socialist jews" tune in after the break for grown men headbutting each other for a leather ball

[QUOTE=Groat;33949720]IAnd homeschooling makes it even worse![/QUOTE] That's not very nice. I'm homeschooled.
lets consider the fact that in most of the underfunded understaffed highschools in america are usually "take test for 10 minutes, ponder about what youll fap to later tonight for the hour and 20 minutes left of class"
[QUOTE=Groat;33949720]In the American education system, it's the exact opposite! And homeschooling makes it even worse![/QUOTE] Homeschooling probably makes you a hundred times better and more well off than public schooling, you are getting [I]direct fucking attention.[/I]
[QUOTE=Sickle;33959031]Homeschooling probably makes you a hundred times better and more well off than public schooling, you are getting [I]direct fucking attention.[/I][/QUOTE] Home school breeds socially inept kids from my experience with kids who are home schooled.
[QUOTE=ScoutKing;33959206]Home school breeds socially inept kids from my experience with kids who are home schooled.[/QUOTE] depends entirely on who does it it used to be just christian parents who wanted to make sure their child was sheltered and protected from the harsh realities of life (evolution) and bullying, but nowadays there's lots of intelligent, responsible parents that are homeschooling because they're realizing the public school system is absolute horse shit not only that, but homeschooling nowadays isn't your mum teaching you how biology works while you drink a capri sun, there's tones of virtual schooling systems with state approved curriculum and a good organization setup to make sure kids graduate on time imo with the state of public schooling the way it is (at least in america), if i were a parent i'd probably opt for home schooling, so long as you can get your kid involved in some social activities so he doesn't grow up a complete fuckup.
[b]I fucking [u]knew[/u] it.[/b]
I would set my child loose in the woods as a 12 year long home schooling assignment. If they survive, they graduate. They must also whittle themselves their graduation certificate. [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/6/6b/Ron_Swanson.jpg/220px-Ron_Swanson.jpg[/img]
[QUOTE=ScoutKing;33959206]Home school breeds socially inept kids from my experience with kids who are home schooled.[/QUOTE] Almost all of my homeschooled friends are as social as kids from public school.
This is so interesting, I never would have known that.
[QUOTE=JaegerMonster;33950468]This is only because uni teaches people to think critically (rather than just recite information off a black/white board) and people actually want to be there.[/QUOTE] I wouldn't say it's an "only" though, it's a huge change, but yeah the basics are the same, you go there and you learn shit.
