Dr Boyce Watkins: Here’s why most valedictorians never become millionaires

The common belief that most Americans have is that academic performance is definitely linked to success in life. But there is a great deal of evidence to say that none of this is true.

In this video below, Dr Boyce Watkins discusses research which explains that high school valedictorians don’t often end up nearly as successful as we might expect. In fact, there is evidence to say that they are far less likely to become millionaires than the kid who rebelled against the system and sat in the back of the class.

Yes, it sounds crazy, but watch the video, it will all make sense after you watch it.
