Outcomes Linked to High-Quality Afterschool Programs: Longitudinal Findings From the Study of Promising Afterschool Programs (New)
Deborah Lowe Vandell, Elizabeth R. Reisner, and Kim M. Pierce
This resource reports the findings of a 2-year study that followed almost 3,000 low-income, ethnically diverse elementary and middle school students from eight states. About half of the students attended high-quality afterschool programs. The researchers found that regular participation in high-quality afterschool programs was linked to significant gains in standardized test scores and work habits as well as reductions in behavior problems among the disadvantaged students.
