The article discusses the study which investigates the effects of childhood behavioral problems to the educational achievement of children during high schools in Detroit, Michigan. Children were assessed at the age of six to measure cognitive ability and attention problems using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children. Then, the final assessment is made at the age of 17 when academic achievement is assessed to determine the effects of attention problems during childhood.
