From

Thenk you very much to a person who had written this summary. Now I can know what the book is about without reading it. Amazon, etc doesn't give such opportunity. Good book, good site and very good summary. Will put this site to my bookmarks.

Chapter 5. I don't have the book in front of me right now so I have to go back and verify, but I believe it states that adopted kids do WORSE on standardized tests than non-adopted kids. This article states that they do better. The whole premise of that chapter is that how well kids test has more to do with who their parents are than what their parents do.

It says that adopted children tended to have LOWER standardized test scores than non-adopted children. You contradicted yourself smart one.
