As a retired high school teacher let me repeat what can not be said often enough.
All teachers can do is to help each student to reach his or her potential, we can not teach potential. If a child is born with a low IQ in math, they will grow old with a low IQ in math. That is their born potential, we need to maximize their skill within that given potential.
Today, many children are being born with low potential. Nice human beings with a good future in a good country. But, we teachers can not turn them into gifted math professors.
This is true of every areal of intelligence. In the end, if you want super smart kids, mate with a super smart person. That will give your children the best chance to do very well in school.
If you want tall children, mate with a tall person, etc.
If you want law abiding children?
You guessed it. If not?
Don't blame the teachers.

I agree on some of it. But not all.
One way to help a child to achieve their full potential in school and as a law abiding person. Is to get the parent(s) involved.
As for the tall kids. There are recessive genes. The Roloff family prove that. Both of the parents are what are known as "Little People". But yet, they have three out of four kids of average height.
Many genes are recessive. Red hair, blue eyes, are a couple of genetic traits that are considered to be recessive.
Thing is, with genes, family, friends, etc.. there are what are known as 'trade offs". You want a gifted intelligent kid, Best bet is to find a person with aspergers. Since to be diagnosed with it. The person needs to be of average to mensa level intelligence. But the trade off is that many aspies are socially inept. Meaning that aspies are not mere social butterflies.
