That can't be true, can it?
Not discounting this at all, but they can also afford tutors. I used to work for an SAT tutor and they could consistently raise a student's SAT score by 50-100 points, even for students that came in with really high scores.
That said, they've had more and better educations in general. And they probably will, on average, do better in college for some combination of biological and socioeconomic reasons.
