Biculturalism and Academic Achievement of African American High School Students
Rust, Jonathan P.; Jackson, Margo A.; Ponterotto, Joseph G.; Blumberg, Fran C.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v39 n3 p130-140 Jul 2011
Biculturalism was examined as a factor that may positively affect the academic achievement of African American high school students, beyond cultural identity and self-esteem. Hierarchical regression analyses determined that cultural identity and academic self-esteem were important factors for academic achievement, but not biculturalism. Implications and future research are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
