"It's a Way of Life for Us": High Mobility and High Achievement in Department of Defense Schools.
Smrekar, Claire E.; Owens, Debra E.
Journal of Negro Education, v72 n1 p165-77 Win 2003
Examines the academic performance of students in U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) schools, which have high student mobility. Some observers contend that these students' high achievement is a function of their middle class family and community characteristics. Asserts that DoDEA schools simultaneously "do the right things" and "do things right," including the way that individual schools, as well as the system, respond to high student mobility. (SM)
