Weighing In: Elementary-Age Students and the Debate on Attitudes toward School among Black Students.
Tyson, Karolyn
Social Forces, v80 n4 p1157-89 Jun 2002
Research on African American students' low academic performance has focused on Black adolescents, who, like most American adolescents, exhibit oppositional attitudes. In contrast, an ethnographic study of two all-Black elementary schools suggests that middle-class Black children begin school very much achievement-oriented and engaged, and that school experiences significantly affect development of school attitudes.
