School Libraries play a huge part in pupils' education

School Libraries play a huge part in pupils' education | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Recent research emphasises this importance. A study by the Institute of Education (2013) found reading for pleasure ‘to be more important for children's cognitive development between ages 10 and 16 than their parents' level of education.’  Similarly a study by Oxford University (2011) found ‘16-year-olds who read books at least once a month were significantly more likely to be in a professional or managerial job at 33 than those who didn’t read books at all’.
