Abstract
The chapter considers the importance and potential contributions of genetics to education and to neuroscience in education (good), the general view about genetics in education (bad), and attempts to date to identify specific genes throughout the genome responsible for ubiquitous genetic influence (ugly). We will use as an example of research one topic of great importance to education – variation in mathematical ability and achievement -- to illustrate the main points.
