The Academic Resilience of Mexican American High School Students.
Gonzalez, Rosemary; Padilla, Amado M.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v19 n3 p301-17 Aug 1997
High- and low-achieving Mexican American students were selected from a database that included 2,169 Mexican American students in three California high schools. A sense of belonging to school was the only significant predictor of student grades, but family and peer support and certain cultural influences also contributed to resilient outcomes. (Author/SV)
