About this product
- DescriptionAn unprecedented work of its time, this book represents a scholarly endeavor that examines the intriguing phemena of language mirity students' academic achievement in the United States. The linear structural relations approach, which is the most powerful analytical procedure for causal studies to date, was employed to explain the cause-effect network that links ethnic language dominance, socio-ecomic status, parental involvement, and psychological orientation to verbal and quantitative achievement. Striking results were found that suggest alternative thinkings to common beliefs and provide new insights into the achievement models of language mirities.
