Williams, Joseph M.; Bryan, Julia; Morrison, Stephaney; Scott, Tracey R.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v45 n3 p183-200 Jul 2017
This phenomenological qualitative study examined a national sample of high-achieving, low-income middle school students' (N = 24) perspectives of protective factors and processes that contribute to their academic success in school. Four main themes and 12 subthemes were identified. The main themes are peer social capital, teachers who care, family and community assets, and multiple streams of motivation. Implications for counselors who serve students living in poverty are discussed.
