Interracial Best Friendships: Relationship with 10th Graders' Academic Achievement Level
Newgent, Rebecca A.; Lee, Sang Min; Daniel, Ashley F.
Professional School Counseling, v11 n2 p98-104 Dec 2007
The authors examined the relationships between interracial best friendships and 10th-grade students' academic achievement. The analysis consisted of data from 13,134 participants in the ELS:2002 database. The results indicated that interracial best friendships for minority students (African Americans, Latino Americans, Asian Americans, and American Indians) generally have a positive relationship with students' academic achievement. Discussion and implications of the results are presented. (Contains 1 table.)
