the IQ problem

Have you ever wondered why are we,Iranians, stuck in a never-ending
hell? well, I think I may have a new explanation. In Iran high school
students, in order of their success in their studies, have several choices.
Top students end up having a good ranking in universities' entrance exam(konoor)
and start studying in a technical or medical field. Students having a weaker
background in order to scape the two year period of soldieing(in case
of the boys) and to have a label as a "university student" choose to
study in a humanities, sicial sciences,literature and languages fields(I think
this is a disaster in some ways, because these are very important and strategic
fields and the real minds of the society must study these). The weakests
usually stay to try for another chance next year, and if they were boys they
may have to go to serve their two year period in army. But there is a group
of students from this last group, usually from religious families, who have
no hope of continuing their studies and attend religious schools (Hozeh).
Although, this doesn't mean that there aren't exceptions. Some may still believe
truly in this kind of studies, and even it's possible that these kind of people
help the improvement of faith in the society, but even in the past, most of
"Talabas" didn't have a good educational and social background, even usually with a
poor IQs! And the result was terrible. That was not all! When they gained the
power in Iran, it turned to be a tragedy. And now we are facing a society ready
to explode and burn!
