Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v12 n4 p387-406 1997
Examined Head Start children's conceptions of and expectations for future schooling, determined whether participation in a Transition Demonstration could affect these, and explored how these are related to children's academic achievement. Found two major themes in conceptions of school: play and the cognitive or learning environment. Expectations were optimistic, and there were correlations between conceptions/expectations and academic achievement. (EV)
