MetadataShow full item record
This report presents the findings of the Barriers to Student Learning policy research project conducted during academic years 1994-95 and 1995-96. The project, funded by the Austin Independent School District (AISD), the Texas Education Agency, and the LBJ School, examined various factors which affect student adjustment and achievement in ethnically diverse schools. These factors included the culture and multicultural climate of school campuses, students' peer and teacher relationships, family influences, and the transition between elementary and middle school. The findings and recommendations are based on research conducted at four AISD campuses from September 1994 through May 1996.
