Study: Delay the dreaded middle school years
Middle school is a time most rational people would like to forget — the time when bullies and body issues tend to emerge and self-awareness often reaches an uncomfortable level. But might it be possible to change that — or at least delay it — by keeping kids in elementary school longer? A new study published in the journal Psychology of Women Quarterly says yes. The researchers posed the question, "Is there a link between individual body image and student body?" when conducting their research, which involved an ethnically diverse sample of more than 1,500 female students between fifth and eighth grades in U.S. school districts.
