I suppose I'm having trouble agreeing with this conclusion. The earlier research linked in this article feels a lot more tangible to me.

    “Basically [the study showed] that monozygotic (identical) twins heritability are more similar in school performance than dizygotic (non-identical) twins,” he said.

So really, this is more about comparing similarities between twins in academic performance. A lot of people will be thinking "parent intelligence --> child intelligence", when I'm not sure how applicable this is to that kind of relationship. I probably know next to nothing about this field, but it just doesn't seem right to me.
