Warren-Sohlberg, Luann; Jason, Leonard A.
Psychology in the Schools, v29 n1 p78-84 Jan 1992
Investigated reasons parents of 451 elementary school children gave for changing schools and demonstrated that reasons influenced children's ability to adjust to new schools. Children transferring because old school closed were more competent academically and had higher average socioeconomic status than others. Those transferring because of changing households had poorer academic performance and more stressful life events. (Author/NB)
