Choi: All other factors being equal, children whose parents earned doctorates are more likely to earn a doctorate than children whose parents did not earn doctorates.
Hart: But consider this: over 70 percent of all doctorate holders do not have a parent that also holds a doctorate.
Which of the following would explain how both Hart and Choi could be correct in their assertions?
Most doctorates who don't have a parent that also holds a doctorate have an aunt or uncle that holds a doctorate. Parental education is rarely the overriding factor in determining whether a person earns a doctorate or not. Both Hart and Choi fail to produce sufficient evidence to prove their cases. One man uses raw numbers while the other uses percents. Hart does not dispute Choi, but rather attempts to support his argument with additional evidence.

Its a good question.
I believe, if they were conversing, it would be like : Hart: Hey !!!..70 % is negative..How you are correct. Choi: Read my sentence Man : All factors being equal !!!...Now if Parental education is rarely affecting the education of Child, I am not responsible. If you make all factors equal, and make my "Parental Education" as prime One, then I am sure....the babies are Noble Winners
