Kids who stayed in elementary school longer got better tests scores

Why it matters: This study is an eye-opener for anyone who cares about how we educate our children. Researchers found that students who stayed in elementary school for grades 6 and 7 performed better on math and reading tests than students who moved on to middle school for those grades. The results suggest students might be better off if middle schools were eliminated; with students staying in elementary school through grade 7 and then moving on to a high school for grade 8. What do you think?
