In a recent study in America, an analysis comparing the engaged reading time and reading scores of more than 2.2 million students found that students who read less than five minutes per day saw the lowest levels of growth, well below the national average. Students who read 5–14 minutes per day saw sluggish gains that were below the national average. Only students who read 15 minutes or more a day saw accelerated reading gains—that is, gains higher than the national average—and students who read just over a half-hour to an hour per day saw the greatest gains of all. Given reading is key to overcoming ignorance - super important anyway but even more super important since the dumbing down of the world caused by social media - maybe all young kids could be encouraged to read for at least 15 minutes per day, every day.
