Beschrijving

Many African-American high school students
underachieve, drop out, and fail to pursue a higher
education. A critical factor of academic achievement
and students relationship to school, peers, family,
their community, and the broader society is
their academic orientation, which is the student s
perception that education is or is not a path to
succeed in American society. Previous studies have
concentrated on why African-Americans adopt an
adversarial academic orientation, while immigrant
students incline toward a positive academic
orientation. However, some African-American children
manage to adopt a positive academic orientation and
pursue educational success. In this study, I examine
the relationship between academic orientation and
ethnic identity formation. Most theories on ethnic
identity are static ones, and do not fit into an
accurate analysis of the African-American sample in
this book. A dynamic concept of ethnicity is
necessary to determine what social factors define
these students'' academic orientation and achievement.
This book provides a new perspective on racial
identity formation and its impact on academic
orientation for African-Americans.
