Send Your Kids to Church!

I found this fascinating article recently. It says that teenagers who attend church have a higher average GPA than teenagers who don't attend church. The article lists several factors that may contribute to this, including socialization with adults, participation in extracurricular activities, and strong friendships. Interestingly, the author doesn't give much value to the "God factor," and even states that any organization that offers the above-mentioned factors would do just as well as church. Despite my previous life as "church girl," I tend to agree with the author's assertions. Let me know what you think.
