Williams, Trina R.; Davis, Larry E.; Cribbs, Julie Miller; Saunders, Jeanne; Williams, James Herbert
Urban Education, v37 n3 p408-31 May 2002
Examined the relationship between academic performance and various contextual factors for urban, African American high school freshmen. Survey data indicated that gender, peers' church attendance, and percentage of relatives completing high school were significant in predicting positive academic outcomes. Perception of neighborhood deterioration inversely related to intention to complete high school and grade point average. School suspensions positively related to perception of neighborhood deterioration. Strong gender differences were evident. (SM)
