Student Adaptation to High School Social Groupings and Normative Environments.
Glasheen, John D.; And Others
This research studies differential aspects within school social systems and the mediating effect of social groupings. It studies the social and social-psychological environments both between schools and within school socioeconomic, ethnic, and curricular environments and relates these to such student adjustment behaviors as: achievement, attendance, discipline, and drop out rates. Data was collected from all 9th grade students in the several public high schools of a socially and ethnically heterogeneous New England city. Both previous and present student record information on attendance, achievement and discipline was included, as well as instruments designed for this study including social (SES, ethnic, and curricular) and social-psychological (self-concept, sense of control, expectations and perceived group and individual integration) data. This is the first report of a longitudinal study which will trace student attitudes, behaviors and outcomes through high school. (Author)
