Pupils raised in religious homes more likely to succeed whether or not they go to faith school

Pupils raised in religious homes are more likely to succeed, regardless of whether they went to faith school or not, a study has found.

Research by the UCL Institute of Education found that pupils from Catholic and Church of England families did well because of their upbringing, not because of their school.

At best, researchers found, attending a religious school was associated with better results at O-Level, but did not affect how well the pupils did at A-Level or university.

For a cohort born in 1970 they analysed pupils' religious upbringing and the school they went to and found that while Christian pupils at Church of England and Catholic schools did better, this became statistically insignificant when the positive impact of their religious upbringing was factored in.

Maybe kids being brought up with religious parents just have more discipline in their lives.

I think the headline is misleading mate

As the study seem to only look at families from Catholics and the Church of England backgrounds

Cool

I reckon a lot of it comes down to the kids being brought up with certain standards of guidamce, self discipline, focused study/work habits, respect and responsibility, stability in the home environment --  all other facors being equal otherwise...

Irrespective of the particular religion..

Having a study concentrate on a narrow range of religious faith makes it look a lot like the authors were moulding their "study" to fit their pre-conceived agenda  ?

I quite agree, as you will find the above ethos within ethnic groups like the Chinese, Japanese etc
