After-School Efforts in N.H. Show Results
Fifty-nine percent of elementary school students and 62 percent of middle school students in New Hampshire who took part in after-school programs showed academic and behavioral improvements in the wake of their participation, concludes a report.
The report by the New Hampshire Afterschool Evaluation Task Force—created in 2002 by then-Gov. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat—rated progress by examining factors such as homework completion, class participation, in-class behavior, attendance, and academic performance in math and English. The report surveyed 16 elementary school programs and 13 middle school programs in the state.
