Ford, Donna Y.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v16 n3 p280-98 Spr 1993
Interviews with 148 African-American fifth- and sixth-grade students (in either gifted, above average, or average academic programs) found that gifted students, regardless of gender, were most supportive of the U.S. achievement ideology, and average students were least supportive. Discrepancies between beliefs about hard work and success and self-reported effort were also found. (DB)
