Common sense dictates that there is some truth here.

For example, some of the dumbest people I have ever seen are well to do Lancastrians who send their kids to Country Day then they say "Well, gees the kid must have ADHD since he's not doing well.." In reality, the kid is average just like you are. Just cause you have money doesn't make you smarter, dumbass.

On the other hand, I have a distant relative who went through man after man after man while raising her children. But the kids are brilliant. They shook off all the nonsense, did OK in school then really excelled in college when they moved out.

Brilliance knows no social-economical boundaries.  Money, wealth has little to do with whether one is a dumb mass or genius.

I agree in as much that the costs of major colleges are over-priced leading usually to little more than debt.
