The Home and School Experiences of At-Risk Youth; An Annotated Bibliography of Research Studies.
Pollack, Seth D.; Bempechat, Janine
This bibliography provides annotations of 33 major research studies on the school and social factors that impede disadvantaged children's ability to learn and succeed in school. The studies demonstrate that a wide range of educational, familial, and social influences can either put children at risk of educational failure early in their lives or help them overcome their disadvantages later in their school careers. No single aspect seems to explain a child's achievement, and several of the studies even contradict the findings of others. Studies are arranged in three sections that reflect the influences of school, home, and society in general on a child's educational experiences. Several authors are represented by different papers in more than one category. Recent research is emphasized, but some seminal studies on at-risk children that were conducted a decade or more ago are also included. Most studies are dated between 1982 and 1989. (Author/FMW)
