The Effect of the Overemphasis of
Extracurricular Activities on the Classroom Environment

Extracurricular activities and athletic programs are important features of American high schools. Little research has been done on how much instructional time is negatively affected or lost due to these activities. The emphasis on extracurricular activities increases the sense of school community in a diverse school, but it also takes away from the already small amount of time teachers have to present new material to their students. Educators and administrators alike need to look carefully at the impact that participation in extracurricular activities has on their classroom and school environments.
