    Extracurricular Activity's Link to Academic Performance

    Number of Pages: 15


    Summary of the research paper:

    A 15 page research proposal for conducting a study into the relative value of extracurricular programs in public schools. In these days of ever-tightening budgets and ongoing criticism of the academic records of public schools, the tendency to cut funding for extracurricular activities is stronger than ever. Traditionally, this has been the area of public school funding that has been first in the line of targets for reducing. The argument is that US students perform far below those of other developed nations, and that US schools need to put more emphasis on academics than on associated activities. Other studies find positive correlation between participation in extracurricular activities and increased academic performance, and this one seeks to determine whether such a link truly does exist. Includes one chart. Bibliography lists 14 sources.
