Adolescents who watch violent films get poorer grades in the classroom

UK Telegraph 21 Oct 06
Children who watch violent horror and action movies suffer from poorer grades at school, according to new research. A study of more than 4,500 school pupils aged between 10- and 14-years-old found those who watched films intended for older audiences were more likely to get lower school marks compared with classmates who watched tamer movies.
The researchers also found that children who watched more than four hours of television during a weekday scored on average lower grades than those who spent less time in front of the television.;jsessionid=WGX3TLRR3L3Q1QFIQMFSFFWAVCBQ0IV0?xml=/news/2006/10/22/nviol22.xml
