Posner, Jill K.; Vandell, Deborah Lowe
Child Development, v65 n2 Apr p440-56 1994
Examined the effects of 4 different types of after-school care arrangements (formal after-school programs, mother care, informal adult supervision, and self-care) on 216 children from low-income families. Children who participated in formal after-school programs had higher academic and conduct grades in school and spent less time watching television than children in the other care arrangements. (MDM)
