A 6 page research proposal designed to assess the effect of such factors as culture, economics, and family structure on educational achievement. Provides an extensive review of the literature and suggest a research project which couples the results of nationally standardized tests with questionnaires designed to identify students culture, economics, and family structure. Concludes that student achievement can be influenced in a number of ways. Positive outcomes of socioeconomic factors are often overridden by negative factors. Poor educational attainment is all too often the outcome. Even negative socio-culturally determined factors such as family structure and financial situation, however, can feasibly be overridden by an effectively designed educational program. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
