Summer Activities of Students Enrolled in Grades 1-12. Indicator of the Month.
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
Students engage in a variety of activities during their summer vacations that provide them with educational opportunities. In the summer of 1996, 9% of students in grades 1 through 12 attended summer school, and 38% participated in other organized summer activities. Among the students who were enrolled in grades 8 through 12, 26% worked for pay during the summer, 2% participated in unpaid internships, and 9% participated in community service. Examining the activities in which students participate may indicate the opportunities that students and their parents value most. (Contains one table and three graphs.) (SLD)
