"Becoming Somebody": Central American Immigrants in U.S. Inner-City Schools.
Suarez-Orozco, Marcelo M.
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v18 n4 p287-99 Dec 1987
The motivational dynamics of recently arrived Central Americans are explored. Issues facing this population are framed in the context of a psychosocial model for understanding minority status and educational functioning in a plural society. A key implication of the findings is that not all minorities share the same problems. (Author/VM)
