Study: Divorce affects kids' math scores
What it determined: A study conducted by a doctoral candidate at the University of Wisconsin found that "children of divorce tend to lag behind in math test scores and interpersonal skills." Because we all know kids who are good at math have zero trouble in social situations.
Why it's dumb: Look, divorce is rough on kids. We're not arguing that sad fact. But why does divorce get all the blame? It's given us so much! "Kramer Vs. Kramer." "Heartburn." Every other movie on the Lifetime Movie Channel. You know what's more dangerous to math scores? Video games. It's like Japan keeps pumping out "Pokemon" games just so that American kids won't even crack the top 20 on the worldwide math score rankings.
