The out-of-school time (OST) field has grown considerably over the last two decades. An exciting new book series, "Current Issues in Out-of-School Time," will lay out the frameworks, practice- and research-based knowledge and tools, and burgeoning paths to advance the field across multiple dimensions: demographic, stakeholder groups, contexts, systems and sectors, and disciplines.
The first book, "The Growing Out - of - School Time Field: Past, Present, and Future," sets the foundation by offering an analysis of the progress made since the 2000s, as well as by looking toward the future for areas of considerations. Leading OST experts, including the Forum's CEO and President Karen Pittman, explore the latest knowledge, intentionally bridging research and practice, and propose new areas of inquiry.
