Title
Study of the Academic Achievement and Personal and Social Adjustment of Jewish Moroccan Immigrant Students in the English High Schools of Montreal
Abstract
The author examines how Moroccan-born and non-Moroccan-born Jewish Montreal English-language high school students differ with regard to certain facets of their school life, particularly achievement, attitude and adjustment. After examining fifty French-speaking Moroccan-born students and a representative sample of non-Moroccan foreign-born Jewish students, the author concludes that Moroccan and non-Moroccan Jewish students do not differ significantly in their attitude toward school or in their personal and social adjustment. However, the Moroccan students achieve poorer grades, appear to integrate more slowly, and experience behaviour problems.
