Academic Performance

In 2003, 75 percent of students ages 12 to 17 met or exceeded the appropriate academic level for their age, up from 69 percent in 1994, says a report by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The report added that nearly one of every four students in the 12- to 17-year-old age group was classified as gifted or participated in academically advanced programs as of the 2002-03 school year. The study also found that 67 percent of 3- to 5-year-olds that year had restrictions on what television programs they could watch, when, and for how long, compared with 54 percent in 1994. The study, based on the Census Bureau’s Survey of Income and Program Participation, included 73 million children.
