Why is concentration so important?
Concentration alone accounts for 62% of a student's overall school results. It is crucial for learning and poor concentration makes learning either frustrating, slow or impossible. Student's struggling to concentrate will not achieve their best results, even if they are in the best school with the best teachers and facilities. Researchers have been studying the importance of concentration and found that:
Children with good concentration:
- in primary and secondary school do better in English and Mathematics
- are more likely to complete high school and get a university or college degree
- do better in their career
- earn more during their lifetime
Children who struggle to concentrate are up to 32% more likely to struggle with:
- drug addiction
- serious and ongoing physical health problems
- criminal convictions
- teenage pregnancy and unsafe sex.
