Gerber, Susan B.
Journal of Research and Development in Education, v30 n1 p42-50 Fall 1996
The relationship between participation in extracurricular activities and academic achievement was examined. Black eighth graders and white eighth graders completed achievement tests and described school and nonschool activities. Amount of participation was positively related to academic achievement. The relationship was stronger for white students overall, and for school-related activities for both groups. (SM)
