Abstract

Despite barriers that low-income, ethnic minority children face regardimg academic achievement, certain factors can help them develop resilience against such trials. The goal of this research is to identify support that students are given during kindergarten and at the end of high school. The project consists of two studies to analyze the two age groups separately. Study 1 will identify how parents support their high school seniors. Study 2 will identify how preschool teachers support their students early learning. Conducting both of these studies is important for understanding the support that children are getting at two important stages of schooling.
