Aypay, Ahmet
Mediterranean Journal of Educational Studies, v7 n1 p87-103 2002
Analyzed factors influencing Turkish students' transitions to high school. Student surveys indicated that socioeconomic status had little or no impact on academic achievement. Previous academic achievement and student aspirations positively related to academic achievement. School type and attending preparatory schools negatively related to academic achievement. Parent educational attainment was not significantly related to academic achievement. (SM)
