Blurb/Shorttext:
Educational policy makers and social researchers often view the extra curriculum as superfluous or even contradictory to the academic mission of schools. However, schools are not merely clinical factories of learning. The physical plant of each school houses a living, breathing social system with all of the requisite parts and functions. The informal interaction of students with each other, as reciprocal agents of socialization, has consequences as tangible as teachers' purposive, didactic interaction with students. Participation in extracurricular activities plays an important role in the emergence and functioning of these social systems – a role that has important ramifications for academic achievement. The findings of this study should be of interest to students, teachers, coaches, parents and policy makers, as well as sociologists of education.
