Eisikovits, Rivka A.
Youth & Society, v31 n3 p310-31 Mar 2000
Examined social adjustment among high school seniors who had immigrated from the former Soviet Union as early adolescents, investigating cultural influences and gender differences. Students considered the school's role to be academic. They felt more comfortable with same-culture peers and were only marginally influenced by the host culture. There were gender differences in how students reacted to their situations. (SM)
