Low-income youth less likely to participate in sports
from Psych Central
A new study finds that lower-income parents are less likely than their higher-income counterparts to involve their children in school- or community-based sports due to barriers such as rising costs for these extracurricular activities. For the study, researchers from RAND Corporation surveyed approximately 2,800 parents, public school administrators and community sports program leaders and discovered that financial costs and time commitments were obstacles to sports participation for middle and high school students.
