A study examined the influence of cultural programming on American Indian students' school outcomes. Structural equation modeling was used to analyze survey data from 240 urban American Indian students aged 9-18. Cultural programming moderately, and largely indirectly, influenced student outcomes. The strongest predictors of school success were supportive personnel and safe, drug-free environments. Contains 53 references. (TD)
