Chinese-Canadian Children's Attitudes toward Schoolwork and Perception of Parental Behaviors That Support Schoolwork.
Leung, Jupian J.
As part of a larger study examining Canadian and American students' attitudes toward schoolwork, this investigation examined the relationship between Chinese-Canadian children's attitudes toward schoolwork and their gender, socioeconomic status, age, school achievement, and school attainment value (the importance they placed on doing well in school). The study also examined the relationship between students' attitudes toward schoolwork and their perception of parental behaviors that support schoolwork. Subjects were 122 Chinese-Canadian fourth- through seventh-grade students in a Roman Catholic school in Vancouver, British Columbia. The students completed a questionnaire that measured their attitudes toward schoolwork and perception of parental behaviors supporting schoolwork. Analysis showed that age was the most useful variable for predicting Chinese-Canadian children's attitudes toward schoolwork and their perceptions of parental behaviors. School attainment value and perceived parental valuing and concern for schoolwork were also useful in predicting students' attitudes toward schoolwork. (MM)
