Do Classroom Volunteers Benefit Schools?
Brent, Brian O.
Principal, v80 n1 p36-40,43 Sep 2000
A study of 575 volunteers in 57 elementary schools discovered that most are women (aged 36-55) supporting classroom and learning activities. Volunteers improve climate, individual student achievement, and school-community relations. Poorer schools lack sufficient volunteers. Benefits outweigh administrative, recruitment, and training costs. (MLH)
