Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v24 n4 p448-64 Nov 2002
A study of 107 low-income, Mexican American adolescents aged 10-13 in Los Angeles found that students' educational and occupational expectations were most strongly related to "social persuasion"--the expectations communicated by parents, teachers, and peers--but were not related to family attainment or neighborhood variables. Educational expectations were also related to previous academic achievement. (Contains 49 references.) (SV)
