Schickedanz, Judith A.
Journal of Education, v177 n1 p17-38 1995
Argues that, while teacher and school efforts are important, the conditions outside of schools hold the key to increasing academic achievement substantially. Family socialization practices in American and Asian families are reviewed; and children's early cognitive and social behaviors are linked to later school behavior, including academic achievement. Recommendations for action are provided. (GR)
