This document contains four papers. "Some Effects of Social Class and Race on Children's Language and Intellectual Abilities" by Martin Whiteman, Bert R. Brown, and Martin Deutsch is a report of research investigating several different interactions between environmental factors, socioeconomic status, race, and the cognitive and verbal abilities of 292 first and fifth grade Negro and white children in New York City. "Racial Attitudes as a Factor in Teacher Education for the Deprived Child" by Philip I. Freedman summarizes three research experiments, one analyzing the reluctance of Caucasian student teachers to work in special service schools, and the other two evaluating varying conditions of contact with Negroes as a means of reducing racial fears and antagonisms and establishing a more receptive psychological set for teaching deprived Negro children. "Effects of Environmental Deprivation on Basic Psychological Processes: Some Hypotheses" by Cynthia P. Deutsch combines a series of research findings to develop hypotheses regarding the relationships between auditory and visual discrimination and attentional, perceptual, and linguistic processes. "Indians in Two Public School Systems: Deprivation and Disadvantage" by Vernon F. Haubrich examined school achievement records, dropout statistics, and other data gathered on two Indian tribes in the Pacific Northwest to analyze relationships between home conditions, school program, and teacher observations and expectations.
