 I'm not a scientist, but I think that IQ does have a heritable component. However, it also has a large - perhaps very large - social component. In other words, it's partially nature, and partially nurture. As an anecdotal example (I know - anecdotes =/= data), my children's school is located in an area with a lot of highly-educated parents.
