    Re: The low birth weight story. I tend to believe it is more socio economical than birth weight/prematurity. As we are aware, the majority of LBW children are born to the underprivledged and do not have the resources to do well in general.
    My 2 cents.

    Re: low birth weights

    Further documentation of what has been suspected for a long time. I wonder when education systems will start recognizing ALL of the factors that can hinder learning.

    copied from the article:
    The researchers ruled out education and social factors because the children were in the same school and came from similar backgrounds. Low birth-weight, which results from premature delivery or slow growth in the womb, seemed to be the major factor.
