The Effect of Language Background on Achievement Level and Learning among Elementary School Students.
Rosenthal, Alvin S.; And Others
Sociology of Education, v56 n4 p157-69 Oct 1983
Among a nationally representative sample of elementary school students, socioeconomic status and race/ethnicity were more important than language in explaining low achievement among language-minority students. Spanish-language background was more strongly related to reading than to math achievement deficits. Importance of the findings for government policy are discussed briefly. (Author/IS)
