Children's Environment and Behavior: High Engagement in School

Abstract

Children's future economic status and productivity in the workforce are determined in part by their performance in school. Research has shown that children and adolescents who are highly engaged in school perform better in terms of test scores, attendance, and advancement from grade to grade. Studies also indicate that low-income children are less successful in school than children from families with higher incomes.
