Why This Indicator Matters

Education plays a primary role in equipping young people with the skills, knowledge and experiences for achievement. A child's early academic success may indicate a higher skill level and could influence the later work and salary a child is capable of achieving. Research shows that achievement motivation and school engagement directly contribute to an adolescent's success in school across all racial and ethnic groups. These developmental assets strengthen an adolescent's commitment to learning by actively encouraging them to do well in school and to continue to succeed for themselves and their future.
