Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This work provides an overview of social, emotional, and cognitive skills of students at Escuela Agrícola, a rural Paraguayan vocational-agricultural high school. Connections between these skills and student outcomes -- including self-efficacy, aggression, academic achievement, and career aspirations -- are analyzed in relation to students' impoverished backgrounds. The results demonstrate the considerable resiliency and accomplishment of these students, especially compared with their local peers. These results also provide a foundation for the school administration and staff to understand and foster the development of students' social, emotional, and cognitive skills and future aspirations.
