Rebuilding the Stock of Social Capital.
Sander, Thomas H.; Putnam, Robert D.
School Administrator, v56 n8 p28-30,32-33 Sep 1999
Social capital and generalized trust are declining. Civic "watering-holes" like bowling leagues, fraternal organizations, choral societies, and "do-gooder" groups are drying up. Schools must spur greater parental involvement, make schools smaller, stress community service, teach civics, fund extracurricular activities, and create meaningful youth-involvement opportunities.
