Ladd, Gary W.
Child Development, v61 n4 p1081-1100 Aug 1990
Students with larger number of classroom friends at time of entering school had more favorable perceptions of school. Children who maintained their friendships increasingly liked school as year progressed. Making new friends was associated with school performance gains. Early peer rejection forecasted less favorable perceptions of school, higher levels of avoidance of school, lower performance levels over the year. (RH)
