The results suggest that procrastination may be a…

Lehman, Brett – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2012
Literature on racially prejudiced stereotypes suggests that students' academic self-concepts (ASC) can be damaged when a stereotype demeans the intelligence of their racial or ethnic group. There is little research on how students overcome this burden, but there is some evidence that the racial composition of friendship groups play a role. One…
