REACTIONS OF NEGRO CHILDREN TOWARD NEGRO AND WHITE TEACHERS.
BIBER, BARBARA; LEWIS, CLAUDIA
CHILDREN'S ATTITUDES TOWARD ADULTS WERE STUDIED IN A HARLEM PUBLIC SCHOOL. UNDER THE CONDITIONS OF A GAME, 51 NEGRO CHILDREN WERE TESTED. THE FIRST PART WAS "LET'S SEE IF ANY OF THESE TEACHERS REMIND YOU OF YOUR OWN TEACHER," AS THE CHILD GLANCED THROUGH PICTURES. BOTH PLEASANT AND UNPLEASANT, OF NEGRO AND WHITE TEACHERS. THE SECOND PART WAS "NOW YOU CAN CHOOSE THE ONES YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE FOR YOUR TEACHER." ANSWERS SHOWED TRENDS OF FEELINGS, BUT NOT ENOUGH CHILDREN WERE TESTED TO ALLOW DEFINITE CONCLUSIONS. FINDINGS ARE SUGGESTED AS POSSIBLE TRENDS FOR FURTHER EXPLORATION. THE ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED FOR THE PURPOSE OF THE GROUNDWORK IT REPRESENTS. THE EXPERIMENT ITSELF WAS FOR TWO DIRECT PURPOSES--WHETHER CHILDREN WOULD BE INFLUENCED BY COLOR OR BY THE PLEASANT-UNPLEASANT ASPECT OF THE PICTURES WHEN ASKED TO PICK OUT THOSE THAT REMINDED THEM OF THEIR TEACHERS, AND HOW MUCH OF THE COLOR FACTOR WOULD ENTER IN AT ALL WHEN THEY WERE ASKED TO CHOOSE THE PICTURES THEY LIKED. RESEARCH WAS PROPOSED IN THE AREA OF PERCEPTION OF THE COLOR FACTOR.
