Growth mindset counter study

The correlation between growth-mindset interventions and academic achievement is limited, according to a recent meta-analysis by researchers from Case Western Reserve University. They looked at more than 229 studies and found that such interventions had a very small effect overall and had limited benefits for high-risk students and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Other education interventions, such as reducing class sizes or increased teacher training, had much larger effects.
