Study: Friends a big influence on grades in middle school
from HealthDay News via U.S.News & World Report
Among middle school students, friendships can make the difference between good and poor grades, researchers have found. Students whose friends are socially active in positive ways get better grades, while those with friends who behave badly get lower grades, according to the results of a new study. In addition, having "pro-social" friends and also staying away from deviant peers was associated with even higher grades than simply being friends with high-achieving students, the study authors noted.
