3.1 The output is the result of fitting an educational attainment function, regressing Son ASVABC, a measure of cognitive ability, SM, and SF, years of schooling (highest grade completed) of the respondent’s mother and father, respectively, using EAWE Data Set 21.

Regress Son ASVABC, SM, and SF and interpret the regression results. There is a saying that if you educate a male, you educate an individual, while if you educate a female, you educate a nation. The premise is that the education of a future mother has a beneficial knock-on effect on the educational attainment of her children. Do your regression results support this view?
