Title:From assets to school outcomes: How finances shape children's perceived possibilities and intentions
Organization:University of Michigan
Short Description:Children from low asset families may lower their expectations for school success and plan to engage in less effort in school. To test this hypothesis, two studies examine the impact of experimentally manipulating mindset about college as either “closed” (expensive) or “open” (can be paid for with need-based financial aid) among low-income early adolescents.
Annotation:Children from low asset families may lower their expectations for school success and plan to engage in less effort in school. To test this hypothesis, two studies examine the impact of experimentally manipulating mindset about college as either “closed” (expensive) or “open” (can be paid for with need-based financial aid) among low-income early adolescents. Results indicate mindset matters. Students predicted that they would get better grades in the open-path condition than in the closed-path condition. When induced to perceive the path to college as open (via financial aid), even young students aspired to better grades.
