Acculturative Stress and Self-Esteem among Puerto Rican Migrant Children.
Diaz, Joseph O. Prewitt; Santiago, Nilza
Migration World Magazine, v26 n1-2 p14-16 1998
Studied how acculturative stress affects self-esteem of 240 upper elementary school children in Puerto Rico, half of whom had never migrated, and half of whom had spent at least one academic year in the United States. Data suggest lower self-esteem for migrants and more disadvantages because they are placed in second-language programs and delayed in content areas. (SLD)
