Adjustment Problems of Mexican and Mexican-American Students: An Anthropological Study.
Trueba, Henry T.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v6 n4 p395-415 Fall 1983
The study of two southern California schools identified 16 distinct characteristics of Mexican and Mexican-American children's adjustment problems. Coping mechanisms tended to be 1) underparticipation, 2) overparticipation, and 3) selective participation in academic tasks under protest. Recommendations include closer home-school ties, more effective teacher training, and increased availability of aides. (Author/DB)
