Learning Requires More than Play

Education Consumers Foundation

Success in school requires schoolwork.  Ask anyone who has succeeded. Parents, teachers, and all others who work with young people can make a huge contribution to both their educational success and their lifelong habits by teaching them to put school work before pleasure.  The alternative of permitting young people to be irresponsible in matters such as schoolwork and then expecting them to become self-disciplined adults is utterly unrealistic.
