Family classes tied to better school performance for poor kids
from Reuters Health
Children in low-income families who get extra help building social skills before kindergarten may behave better and get higher grades than their peers, a small study suggests. Researchers focused on kids that are traditionally at high risk for mental health problems and academic underachievement — low-income minority children attending high-poverty urban schools. The experiment included 10 public schools in New York City serving predominantly poor, black students.
