The Effect of Sex and Predominant Socioeconomic Class School Climate on Expectations of Success Among Black Students
Teahan, John E.
Journal of Negro Education, 43, 2, 245-255, Spr 74
In a study of black students in five different essentially black schools, it was found that peer influence or the predominant socioeconomic class of a school does exert a considerable impact. In primarily middle class schools, lower class males are elevated in terms of expected occupational success in contrast to lower class males in predominantly lower-class schools, where expectations seem depressed. Females expectations were depressed in comparison to males at all schools. (EH)
