Anyone have this? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25224261?dopt=Abstract

Looks like this might be the first paper to demonstrate that some of the same SNPs associated with physical brain structure are also implicated in (verbal) IQ scores.

[Edit] Never mind, I managed to dig it up. Here it is if anyone else wants it too.
Can anyone find a copy of the paper below?

Revue Française de Sociologie Cover
Ichou,Mathieu (2013), “Différences d’origine et origine des différences : les résultats scolaires des enfants d’émigrés/immigrés en France du début de l’école primaire à la fin du collège,” Revue française de sociologie, Vol. 54, Issue 1, pp. 5-52.

Thanks.

My uni stopped subscribing to that French journal in 2010. Sorry.

I note however there is an English version too. http://cairn-int.info/resume.php?ID_ARTICLE=E_RFS_541_0005

Perhaps just email the author and ask for a copy.

We should also take a look at this book when it comes out:

Heath, Anthony F. and Yae¨l Brinbaum, eds. Forthcoming. Unequal Attainments. Ethnic Educational Inequalities in Ten Western Countries. Oxford: Proceedings of the British Academy

I attached a paper which discusses some of the results.

Looks useful. Perhaps email her and kindly ask for the data for further analysis.

Does anyone have access to:

"Differential outcomes in high-stakes eleven plus testing: the role of gender, geography, and assessment design in Trinidad and Tobago."

I would like to see if regional % ancestry is associated with score differences in T & T.

Thanks.

My uni. only has access to that journal from '97 and onwards. The author is apparently dead, so we can't ask her. http://www.justgiving.com/remember/64572/Florisse-Kysel
