Massey, Grace Carroll; And Others
Black Scholar, 7, 3, 10-19, Nov 75
Discusses a survey conducted in 1974 to determine students' perceptions of themselves and their academic environments, with the purpose of refuting 'deficit' theories of low performance of blacks in schools, arguing that the school system is encouraging black students to develop unrealistic academic self concepts, which act as barriers to reaching their future goals.
