The Promise of After-School Programs.
Miller, Beth M.
Educational Leadership, v58 n7 p6-12 Apr 2001
After-school program participation is associated with higher grades and test scores, especially for low-income students. Programs come in three types: school-age childcare, youth development, and educational after-school programs. Few programs meet students' needs, due to inadequate funding, poorly trained leadership, transient staff, inappropriate facilities, and unclear mission. (Contains 20 references.) (MLH)
