Predicting School Problems of the Hawaiian Minority.
Tharp, Roland; Gallimore, Ronald
An informal survey of Hawaiian school teachers and administrators revealed a considerable variance among communities in the type of problems mentioned. A model was formulated to specify the characteristics of the communities in the hope of discovering a basis for allocating future program resources. The model consists of two dimensions: density of Hawaiian population (which includes both the number and relative visibility of the Hawaiian population in a given community) and degree of urbanization. Communities characterized by high density-high urbanization are expected to have a severe degree of all problem elements: motivational, academic, and social/behavioral. High density-low urbanization areas are expected to have problems primarily academic and/or motivational. Low denity-low urbanization problems will be primarily motivational, while low density-high urbanization problems will be primarily academic only. Research to test the model is proposed.
