The Role of School in Political Socialization Reconsidered: Evidence from 1970 and 1979.
Travers, Eva F.
Youth and Society, v14 n4 p475-500 Jun 1983
IN 1970, ability tracking of students at one high school was more strongly associated with political beliefs and participation than was students' socioeconomic background. Participation in an alternative school program in 1979 appeared to have the same effects on political attitudes and behavior than ability tracking did in 1970. (Author/MJL)
