Jagers, Robert J.
Journal of Adolescence, v19 n4 p371-81 Aug 1996
Examined connections between culture and problem behaviors among 119 African American fifth and sixth graders. Results indicate that youth endorsed the Afrocultural orientation of spirituality and the Anglocultural orientation of effort optimism most highly. The Anglocultural orientation of person/object relations and the marginalized orientations of school rejection and gang-related activity predicted problem behaviors. (RJM)
