Die Differenz im Elternhaus wächst ...

„An additional year of daily mother–child reading would increase children’s reading test scores in the early school grades by 41 percent of a standard deviation on average. […] Substantial numbers of parents do not read to their children on a regular basis. In 2007, 16 % of all parents of a child aged 3-5 years and 29 % of parents living below the poverty line reported that neither they nor other family members read to their children at least three times per week. This represents an increase since 2001 when the number was 26 % of poor parents. In addition, the gap in the amount of time that parents spend with their children overall and in educationally relevant activities has widened over the last 20 years because the rate at which highly educated mothers have increased amount of time in they spend in educational activities with their children has exceeded the rate at which mothers with less education increased such time with their children.“
