An Exploratory Examination of Teachers' Perceptions of Pupils' Race.
Catalogna, Lenore; And Others
The purpose of this study was to explore on a preliminary basis teachers' perceptions and prejudices with regard to pupils' race. Individual interviews with 96 teachers included their labeling and sorting of pupil photographs. The left-to-right valence framework of the Self-Social Symbols Tasks was utilized as an unobtrusive measure of prejudice. The mean number of races identified by the teachers was 3.73. The most frequent basis for their designations of race was color. White pupils tended to be accorded the most positive and Puerto Rican the most negative position. Tables of data are included.
