Cultural Discontinuities and Schooling.
Ogbu, John U.
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v13 n4 p290-307 Win 1982
Attempts to define the cultural discontinuity (between schools and students) hypothesis by distinguishing between universal, primary, and secondary discontinuities. Suggests that each of these is associated with a distinct type of school problem, and that secondary cultural discontinuities commonly affect minority students in the United States. (Author/GC)
