Social Support and Achievement for Young Adolescents in Chicago: The Role of School Academic Press.
Lee, Valerie E.; Smith, Julia B.
American Educational Research Journal, v36 n4 p907-45 Win 1999
Studied the relationship between social support for academic achievement and achievement in reading and mathematics over a school year using data from surveys of 30,000 sixth and seventh graders in Chicago. Results show social support to be modestly but positively related to learning, but both learning and the relationship between social support and learning are contingent on the academic press of the school.
