Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n4 p745-60 Dec 2000
Investigates sociocultural and family factors that contribute to children's academic achievement among 40 European American (EA) and 40 second-generation Chinese American (CA) preschool and kindergarten children. CA children outscored EA children in mathematics at all three intervals, and were better readers by the third interval. CA parents report greater structuring of their children's time and use of more formal teaching methods. (Contains 50 references and 12 tables.) (Author/GCP)
