Improving Student Participation. New Directions for Student Councils, Number 7.
High student participation in the activity program has to be a goal of every secondary school administrator and activities adviser. After all, the activities program cannot perform its valuable function unless it meets the interests of as many students as possible. High participation, however, is easier to state as a goal than to achieve in practice. The administrator, the adviser, and the student officer all have important roles to play in stimulating participation, and all ought to be alert to the emotional and intellectual needs of a variety of students. To help explain some of the aspects of this problem, the National Association of Student Councils presents this booklet--the seventh in its series of New Directions for Student Councils. (Author/PC)
