Disjunction to Higher Education: American Indian Students in the Southwest.
Pottinger, Richard
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v20 n4 p326-44 Dec 1989
Questions theoretical frameworks established by past research thought to explain the minority student college attrition rate. Finds the unexplained attrition (possibly influenced by unknown factors) of American Indian students to be 50 percent relative to the Anglo population, despite controls for differences other than ethnic origin. Indicates insufficiencies of existing frameworks. (JS)
