SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WXYZ) - A new national study found the more money parents contribute toward their kids' education, the lower the grades they earn.
The study was conducted by University of California-Merced sociology professor Laura Hamilton.
She says this is a modest effect: not enough to make the students fail out of college.
Researchers found that students who got financial help from their parents when attending college were more likely to graduate, but with lower grade point averages.
