[ODP] Immigrant GPA in Danish primary school is predictable from country-level variab

1. I rewrote the paragraph to emphasize the point that the two tendencies would cancel each other out. Feel free to accept or reject what I wrote:

This study only concerns normal schools and excludes special education schools, which have a higher proportion of lower GI students. Immigrants may thus be over-represented in such schools, thereby reducing the GPA gap in normal schools and making it seem smaller than it really is for the Danish population as a whole. Immigrants are in fact over-represented in some special education schools, especially the second generation (see the appendix for details). On the other hand, there may be under-diagnosis of special education needs among immigrant students. Such under-diagnosis would happen partly because social workers may try to avoid assigning immigrant students to schools for the retarded and partly because a higher proportion of immigrants appear behaviorally normal even in the "retarded" range (usually less than an IQ of 75). In a population with a lower mean IQ, it is less likely that a below-75 IQ would have unusual genetic or developmental causes (e.g., Down's Syndrome) that disrupt many aspects of mental functioning. Low IQ individuals would thus seem more behaviorally normal and be less likely assigned to special education classes.\cite{jensen1969much} These two tendencies—to assign immigrant children to special education schools and not to assign them—would cancel each other out. It is currently unknown how large these biases are for the Danish data, so some caution is advised.


Thanks. Your version is better. I have replaced mine with yours.

Quote:2. Your quote would have more "punch" if it came from a mainstream newspaper. But maybe that's too much to hope for.

Most journalists are very left-leaning in Denmark. I have reviewed the surveys of this before and found that 70-90% of journalists or journalist students voted or would vote for left-wing parties excluding the conservative Danish People's Party which altho it has a leftist economic policy, has a conservative social policy.

However, if one reads the comment sections on newspaper, one will see that people frequently invoke Islam or some connected feature with it such as parallel societies, counter-culture and the like. E.g. counter-culture is mentioned here.

Mostly, the discussion of stuff like this takes place in the comment sections and on user-driven sites such as 180grader.dk. This is

Sometimes one will see people denying the influence of Islam on negative outcomes. E.g. one Muslim debater denies the influence of Islam on crime rates among Muslim groups here.

Even if not mentioned in mainstream media, it deserves attention.

I don't want to expand the paper to discuss possible media bias or the leftism of journalists etc., I want to stay closer to the numbers and avoid the more political aspects.

Quote:I am willing to approve the manuscript. Do you have enough approvals for publication?

No, I have two approvals: one for Fuerst and one from you. Meng Hu approved an earlier version, however this paper has changed so much that a re-approval seems in order. I will send him an email.

I have updated the draft at OSF.
