Abstract:The findings reveal that the process of ethnic identity development in adolescence varies significantly by ethnic group membership. The data reveal that current institutional conceptualizations of ethnicity do not represent the range of ethnic groups in the school and do not capture the complexity of meaning associated with those ethnic group identifications. Furthermore, although adolescents attend the same school, their experiences within that particular context vary based on their ethnicity and their perceptions of familial ethnic socialization, peers, and school climate.
