Willeto, Angela A. A.
Journal of American Indian Education, v38 n2 p1-24 Win 1999
A study of 451 Navajo youths attending 11 high schools in the Navajo Nation found no relationship between their academic achievement and their cultural attachments and practices. Families modestly influenced educational outcomes, but being female was a stronger predictor of academic success. An appendix describes study variables. (Contains 42 references.) (TD)
