Evidence seems to show this. It makes sense, because students show their abilities largely through written exams. As a teacher, I often found that students with little background in reading struggled to understand questions even if they knew the material. http://www.literacytrust.org.uk/news/5560_study_provides_evidence_that_reading_for_pleasure_boosts_children_s_academic_performance

Yes... reading increases a person's vocabulary, as well as increasing their knowledge.
