Educational Effects of Interscholastic Athletic Participation on African-American and Hispanic Youth.
Melnick, Merrill J.; And Others
Adolescence, v27 n106 p295-308 Sum 1992
Examined educational effects of interscholastic athletic participation on national sample of African-American and Hispanic high school students (n=3,686). Found sports participation generally unrelated to grades and standardized test scores. Athletic participation enhanced popularity and contributed to greater involvement in extracurricular activities. Depending on school location, athletic participation was significantly related to lower dropout rates for some. (Author/NB)
