Speed Reading — Level 0 — 100 wpm 

This is the text (if you need help).

Money does not help children pass exams. Parents are wasting their money. It is better to take children on a trip. They will try harder and do better. Researchers looked at how money and trips changed the way students studied. Many students tried harder in class. They did more homework, but did not do better in tests.

The report looked at the wrong things. It needed to look at what makes students work harder. Some students think studying can help them get their goals in life. Other kids think studying makes no difference. They think success comes from family background. Good teachers are most important, especially for poorer children.
