Influence of International Schools on the Perception of Local Students' Individual and Collective Identities, Career Aspirations and Choice of University
Kanan, Hana M.; Baker, Ahmad M.
Journal of Research in International Education, v5 n3 p251-268 2006
This article examines the influence international schools have on adolescent local students in terms of individual and collective identity, career aspiration, and type and location of the university they wish to attend. A random cluster sample of 270 students attending international, magnet and public schools in Qatar were administered a questionnaire designed to tap their perceived identities and professional and educational aspirations. The results of the study showed that students attending international schools differed from their counterparts who attend public or magnet schools in the way they perceived themselves and their career choices. The results are discussed in terms of their relevance to future research and the influence international education may have on local students. (Contains 8 tables.)
