For decades, there has been a continuous debate regarding the effect that school related activities have on their participants in later life. Some educators believe that school activities are a laboratory of the school curriculum and produce positive traits like leadership, self-esteem, and social and emotional development (Walter and Smith, 1986). However, many educators feel that activities (i.e. athletics) are too predominant in the educational process (Miller, 1985).
