Clubs Reach Urban Middle Level Students.

When busing limits number of afternoon activities and students do not seem interested anyway, principals must look for opportunities during day to involve students. One inner-city middle-school principal helped teachers initiate program of morning clubs and assemblies to increase student self-esteem and encourage student and parent involvement with school. Daily attendance improved, and so did students' attitudes and behaviors. (MLH)
