This has led some writers to speculate that historical limitations in educational and employment opportunities lead to more variability in parental behavior within the lower SES AA group then within the lower SES White group. In the studies cited earlier, home environment ratings typically added significant information to the prediction of IQ scores from SES for AA children, and this increment in variance explained was often larger than that for White children.

43. Table 1 shows the mean FSIQ score for children of parents at different levels of educational attainment. Although there is little difference among the two groups that did not complete high school, mean FSIQ scores of children generally increase substantially with each subsequent level of education obtained by their parents. These differences are not trivial. There is a 20 point or greater difference in the mean FSIQ score of children whose parents dropped out of high school as compared to those who completed college.

While this sampling methodology accurately reflects each population as it exists in society, it exaggerates the difference between the mean IQ scores of these groups because the SES levels of the various racial/ethnic samples are not equal. If test publishers were to use the same national SES percentages for all racial/ethnic groups, the IQ score gap between groups would be smaller, although not eliminated for all groups, as demonstrated later in this chapter. At the same time, however, this alternate sampling procedure would obscure the magnitude of societal differences in the developmental milieu of children across racial/ethnic groups.
