If you know the answer, please raise your foot…

Numerous studies have shown a strong correlation between the size of students’ feet and their reading ability. Statistically speaking, the bigger a student’s shoe size is, the better his reading level is.

Pretty neat, huh? Maybe you should buy your kids bigger shoes just to encourage them!

My entire factoid, while true, is a logical sham. Can you explain why?

  1. perhaps it is too obvious to be right…you said the correlation was between the size of feet and their reading ability, not shoe size and reading level. shoes are not equal to feet.

    but hey. that’s just me. 🙂

  2. Students with larger shoe sizes are older. Twelfth-graders will all have larger feet than first-graders.
