Abstract: This study explores pre-service teachers’ perceptions of academic achievement as related to students' socioeconomic status (SES). Data were collected from participants in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the United States. Using cultural psychological perspectives, I revisit elements of attribute reasoning that are embedded in individualist and collectivist orientations. Pre-service teachers in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore tended to attribute academic failure of low SES students to personal factors, such as individual effort, intelligence, and motivation, while participants from the United States placed blame with situational factors such as family, school, and community.
