Research not directly on the tax credits also suggests that income-boosting policies like the EITC and CTC improve school performance.  Researchers analyzing ten anti-poverty and welfare-to-work experiments found a consistent pattern of better school results for low-income children in programs that provided more income.  Each $1,000 increase (in 2001 dollars) in annual income — the equivalent of a full CTC for one child — for two to five years led to modest but statistically significant increases in young children’s school performance on a number of measures, including test scores.  The researchers noted that their results have important implications for policies that link increases in income to increases in employment, like the EITC and CTC.
