Lopez, Eric J.; Ehly, Stewart; Garcia-Vasquez, Enedina
Psychology in the Schools, v39 n3 p245-57 May 2002
Concern about the high dropout rate among Mexican American high school students promoted a study to investigate how acculturation and social support influence academic achievement. Students who were highly integrated and strongly bicultural tended to have higher academic achievement. Females tended to have high GPAs; males were slightly more acculturated. (JDM)
