Sandoval-Hernández, Andrés; Bialowolski, Piotr – Asia Pacific Education Review, 2016
It is well documented that academic achievement of students from families of low socioeconomic status (SES) tends to be below their more socially advantaged peers. Several studies have identified factors and conditions that facilitate academic success for disadvantaged students (i.e., promote academic resilience). However, one of the main…
