The Black Child's Self-Concept Within the School Context.
Yeager, Charles M.
This study reports on some educational aspects of the black child's self-concept. The data support a view that there is a statistically significant correlation between the child's self-concept and the teacher's view of him. It also indicates that father absence is more dysfunctional to children born in the North than the South and that school Socio-Economic-Status (SES) is related to the child's self-view. Issues raised for further research are: (1) Is age more important than achievement relative to classmates in determining self-concept? (2) Is it the SES and racial composition of the school or the change in the child's experience of these two variables that has the greatest effect on the child? And (3) If integration depresses self-evaluation, will a period of time in a consistently integrated setting neutralize this effect? Appendixes contain graphs illustrating differences between the child's evaluation of himself and the evaluation of his teacher in varying contexts. A bibliography is attached. (Author/JD)
