Low-Income Adolescents' Perceptions of Social Class Related Peer Affiliations in School.
Brantlinger, Ellen
Interchange, v22 n3 p9-27 1991
Researchers interviewed 40 midwestern low-income adolescents to determine their perceptions of social class related peer affiliations in school. Subjects gave more negative descriptions of low-income than high-income student groups and described a social-class biased schooling. Their reluctance to identify with low-status groups obstructed social class solidarity. (SM)
