Reflections on Economic Class: Voices of Middle Class Children.
Journal of Children and Poverty, v4 n1 p1-24 Win-Spr 1998
How middle class children interpret public messages about class status was studied through interviews with 24 children ages 5 to 14. Children, especially at younger ages, generally faulted individuals for creating their poverty, just as they credited the wealthy with creating their own prosperity. However, they generally interpreted the wealthy as snobbish. (SLD)
