Ling, Thomson; Moore, Kristin A.
Child Trends
The effective education of American children and youth is widely considered an important goal. For individuals, education traditionally has been regarded as a door to expanded opportunities. For the nation, an educated workforce has come to be recognized as essential to ensuring competitiveness in a global economy. An important question for those concerned with improving adolescent functioning is how to increase students' levels of educational functioning. This review is based on 40 social interventions and programs that take place during out-of-school time. These interventions have been evaluated in a random assignment experiment and focus on educational outcomes from the Child Trends database of experimental evaluations of social interventions for children and youth--LINKS (Lifecourse Interventions to Nurture Kids Successfully). (Contains 10 endnotes.)
