Students' Early Reading, Math Skills Tied To Future Success

HealthDay (5/13) reports that according to a new study from researchers in Great Britain, early childhood math and reading abilities "influence how successful [people] are as adults." The piece notes that researchers found that "people who had higher reading and math skills at age 7 had higher incomes, better housing and better jobs" by the time they were in their 40s. This link "was independent of intelligence, education and socioeconomic status in childhood, according to the study."
