Athletics, Aspirations, and Attainments
Otto, Luther B.; Alwin, Duane F.
Sociology of Education, 50, 2, 102-13, Apr 77
The authors (1) cross-validate research supporting the hypothesis that perceived peer status mediates the effects of athletics on educational aspirations and attainments; (2) compare the estimates with those for a model which incorporates significant-others' influence as the key intervening variable; and (3) extend past research to include estimates of the effects on occupational aspirations and attainments and income.
