Level of Educational Attainment (LEA) and IQ Indicators: A Case Study Approach

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

This paper examines the constructs “Level of Educational Attainment” (LEA) and “Intelligence Quotient” (IQ) using a Case Study Approach based in current United States political conflicts and debates between U.S. Representative Maxine Waters and U.S. President Donald Trump. Specifically, the researcher examines U.S. President Donald Trump’s claim that U.S. Representative Maxine Waters, a democratic member of the U.S. Congress from the State of California, is a “low IQ individual”. The researcher examines IQ indicators and focuses on the Level of Educational Attainment (LEA) of Trump and Waters by accessing, analyzing, and interpreting the most current vital data on Level of Educational Attainment (LEA) at the post-secondary level, specifically examining both parties’ (Trump and Waters) LEA in relation to the population samples within their age groups. Additionally, the researcher briefly looks at the life circumstances of both Donald Trump and Maxine Waters to make an educated conclusion about both leaders’ levels of intelligence and IQs.
