Racial Determinants of Teachers' Perceptions of Placement of the Educable Mentally Retarded.
Zucker, Stanley H.; And Others
In the study involving 180 second and third grade teachers the effect of a student's sex or race on recommendations for placement in special classes for the educable mentally retarded was determined. Ss were randomly assigned to one of four groups: Group 1 received a case study depicting an Anglo-American male; Group 2 received a case study depicting an Anglo-American female; Group 3 received a case study depicting a Mexican-American male; and Group 4 received a case study depicting a Mexican-American female. It was found that regardless of the sex of the child, teachers scored special class placement more appropriate for Mexican-American children than they did for Anglo-American children. (SBH)
