Television Access and the Slowing of Cognitive Growth
Hornik, Robert C.
American Educational Research Journal, 15, 1, 1-15, W 78
Reading skills, general ability, and academic achievement were studied in El Salvadoran junior high school students who had recently acquired a television. There were no obvious effects on short-term achievement, but consistent negative effects on reading improvement were found. In the most disadvantaged students, general ability growth was negatively affected. (GDC)
