Schmader, Toni; Major, Brenda; Gramzow, Richard H.
Journal of Social Issues, v57 n1 p93-111 2001
Investigated the relationships between perceived ethnic injustices and processes of psychological disengagement among White, African American, and Hispanic American college students, examining perceived ethnic injustice and academic performance as predictors of devaluing and discounting. Student surveys indicated that broader beliefs about social injustice related to minority students' attitudes toward academic outcomes, regardless of their actual school performance. (SM)
