Key Determinants of Motivation and Non-Traditional Aboriginal Students in School Settings: Recommendations for Educational Change.
McInerney, Dennis M.
Australian Journal of Education, v35 n2 p154-74 Aug 1991
A study in 12 New South Wales (Australia) high schools investigated differences in motivation for Aboriginal (n=496), migrant (n=487), and Anglo (n=1172) students. A consistent picture of the urban Aboriginal child emerged, and key variables in his decision making (self-reliance, confidence, and goal direction) were identified as well as facilitating factors such as parental and school support.
