The Sports Participation Effect on Educational Attainment of Black Males
Harris, Paul C.
Education and Urban Society, v46 n5 p507-521 Jul 2014
The purpose of this study is to explore the direct, indirect, and total effects of high school sports participation on educational attainment for Black males using the Educational Longitudinal Study (2002/2006), a large, nationally representative, database. A path analysis procedure for determining underlying causal relationships between variables is presented. Although the implications of the results of this study are relevant for all who work with this population, school counselors are specifically highlighted.
