Knight, George P.; And Others
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, 9, 1, 87-97, Mar 78
It was found that from second to third generation, Mexican American children increasingly approach Anglo American norms with respect to field independence, reading achievement, and math achievement. Opposite trends were obtained with respect to self esteem; no significant effects were found with regard to locus of control. (Author/AM)
