Dimensions of Powerlessness Among Black and White High School Students
Burbach, Harold J.; Wagoner, Jennings L., Jr.
Journal of Negro Education, 63, 4, 419-428, F 74
This study examined empirically the structure of the powerlessness construct and compared the factorial structure of the concept across racial groups. The results suggested that powerlessness can be meaningfully interpreted as a general concept. However, with respect to the factorial structure of the individual dimensions of powerlessness, enough differences existed to discourage a multidimensional interpretation for the racially mixed sample. The response patterns of black students were considerably more complex than those of the white students. (EH)
