Interscholastic Athletic Programs: A Positive Factor in School Reform.
Smith, J. W., Jr.
NASSP Bulletin, v78 n559 p93-98 Feb 1994
Major national policy statements driving the school reform movement ignore potential of interscholastic athletic programs for improving public education. A decline in public support for athletics, the "back to basics" movement, and athletics' traditional financial vulnerability point to an uncertain future. Research shows that athletic programs result in reduced discipline problems, increased academic achievement, and a higher graduation rate. (MLH)
