School Spirit
  • Studies do agree that school sports are
    associated with giving people a sense of
    community, belonging, and pride in ones place of
    education.

    or the students education?

  • While proponents of interscholastic sports say
    that displays of school spirit strengthen student
    identification with their places of learning and
    create feelings of togetherness needed to achieve
    educational goals, critics say the spirit created
    by sports is temporary, superficial, and
    unrelated to the achievement of educational
    goals.
  • replied with mixed emotions
  • some were outraged with these critics
  • some thought school spirit was important for
    students, but also thought school spirit had no
    relation to educational goals

  • Resultantly, the experts believe.

    and be given a sense of ownership in its
    institution
  • cheering at games source of energy release,
    unless students are actively involved in school
    on a daily basis

    institution
