Academic Achievement of Recent Immigrants from Mexico.
Baral, David P.
NABE: The Journal for the National Association for Bilingual Education, v3 n3 p1-13 Spr 1979
Presents evidence contradicting previous findings regarding the relative academic superiority of recent Mexican immigrants over native-born Mexican Americans. Discusses the problem of the relative achievement levels of the two groups in the context of three possible explanations: socio-economic differences; teacher expectancy effect; and native language theory.
