Study: Attractive Pupils Do Better

And your parents always told you it's what's inside that matters. A new study shows that students rated more attractive are more likely to get good grades and continue on to college—so much so that the GPA disparity between the good-looking and the unattractive was equal to the difference in growing up in a two-parent or single parent home. The study, from the Society for Research on Child Development, shows that better-looking children got more teacher attention, reported less depression, and also became more successful later in life.
