In 2001, `03 and `04 I revisited the "time spent" in public school

"Research shows that
number of young adults are leaving church in middle school and high
school. Over 60% of children who grow up in the church will
leave it as young adults. Why is there a massive exodus at
such a young age? Ken Ham and Brit Beemer have done the
research and found the answer.

Answers in Genesis
and the acclaimed new Creation Museum, and Beemer, chairman of
America’s Research Group, surveyed 1,000 young adults who have left
churches and found both their reasons for leaving and a surprising
source for this exodus.
The book states that
there are two
groups in these young people: one that never attends church and
does not plan to attend, and one that only attends on holidays and
may attend once they have children. The first group is
skeptical of biblical authority, and the second is disillusioned
with the church in general.
