Perceptions of the School Psychological Environment in Predicting Adolescent Mothers' Educational Expectations.
Kalil, Ariel
Journal of Adolescent Research, v17 n6 p555-67 Nov 2002
Drawing on theories of educational motivation, this study investigated how perceptions of the school psychological environment predict change over time in educational expectations among low-income adolescent mothers. Findings indicated that teenage mothers' perceptions that teachers devalued them intellectually by underestimating their abilities or capabilities due to their status as mothers were predictors of decline in educational expectations.
