Service-Learning May Influence Some Students' Attendance and Academic Performance
Baumann, Paul
Education Commission of the States
In 2010, the National Center for Learning and Civic Engagement (NCLCE) established the Schools of Success, a national network of 19 schools that use service-learning as an instructional strategy. The schools were part of a three-year project to examine how the elements of service-learning might enhance key student outcomes, such as academic performance and civic engagement. This brief reports on the relationships observed between students' participation in service-learning and academic performance and school attendance. [This report was funded by Learn and Serve America (LSA), which is a United States government program under the authority of the Corporation for National and Community Service.]
