One meta-analysis looked at 15 separate studies found that religiousness was positively associated with grade point average (mean r .21) and achievement test scores (mean r .15) in Black and Hispanic American youths.

Another meta-analysis that looked at 41 separate studies found that "Catholic and Protestant school students do better than their counterparts in public schools."

The study performed by Phil Zuckerman did find a slight advantage of the religiously unaffiliated in intelligence. However, that study has been criticized because it relied on IQ tests as a measure and IQ tests have been heavily criticized for not being a good scientific basis to measure intelligence.

So there is no strong evidence to support the claim, "The correlation between uneducated and being religious is very high."

1) **The adjustive or adaptive function**. Schools are to establish fixed habits of reaction to authority. This, of course, precludes critical judgment completely. It also pretty much destroys the idea that useful or interesting material should be taught, because you can't test for reflexive obedience until you know whether you can make kids learn, and do, foolish and boring things.
2) **The integrating function**. This might well be called "the conformity function," because its intention is to make children as alike as possible. People who conform are predictable, and this is of great use to those who wish to harness and manipulate a large labor force.
3) **The diagnostic and directive function**. School is meant to determine each student's proper social role. This is done by logging evidence mathematically and anecdotally on cumulative records. As in "your permanent record." Yes, you do have one.
