Newsflash for American high school students -- choose friends wisely, or they may end up costing you your education. In fact, new mathematical modeling from Arizona State University, Northeastern Illinois University, and the University of Texas at Arlington documents the exact statistical tipping point when positive parental influence — found to be the leading indicator of academic performance and whether or not a student will eventually graduate — is effectively neutralized by negative peer influence.
