Religious Kids Do Better in School

9/23/10

According to a Family Research Council (FRC) study as reported by One News Now, the grade-point average of students involved in religious activities is 14% higher than those not involved. It also shows religious students spend more time on their homework. “Worshipping God changes you, and that change makes the kid better at learning. This is clearly a great good for humanity,” notes FRC’s Dr. Pat Fagan. Nothing prevents any leader from pointing to the benefits of religion, no matter what their religious beliefs.
