How a Random Scatter Plot Looks 

Sample Random Scatter Plot 
"PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT
IN EDUCATION", U.S Department of Education, Office of Educational Research and
Improvement, "Fathers' Involvement in Their Children's Schools", NCES 98091 
In singlemother households,
the mothers' moderate involvement in their children's educations decreases their
likelihood of getting mostly A's by 32%. 
Table B8 & Table B6 
In singlemother households,
the nonresident fathers' moderate involvement in their children's educations increases
their likelihood of getting mostly A's by 39% 
Table 10 & Table B5 
In singlefather households,
the fathers' moderate involvement in their children's educations increases their
likelihood of getting mostly A's by two fold 
Table B7 
In twoparent families, fathers' "highly
involved" in their children's educations increase the probability of children getting
"mostly A's" by 35%, while the mothers involvement decreases the probability.

CONCLUSIONS 


US GDP declined 164 million ounces of gold for each 1
point decrease in SAT scores. 

SAT Scores and gold.htm 
Decreasing total
expenditures for education from 7.9% of GDP to 4.8% (a level equivalent to Japan) would
save taxpayers $232 billion/year.

Increasing SAT Scores 98
points could increase GDP by the equivalent of 16.1 billion ounces of gold, or $4.9
trillion. 



Failure to aggressively research and correct this problem is a
multitrillion dollar loss to more than just taxpayersit condemns our youth to lifelong
social pathologies.
