Teacher Prophecies and the Inheritance of Inequality
Williams, Trevor
Sociology of Education, 49, 3, 223-36, Jul 76
Presents a causal model showing how teacher prophecies may transmit the effects of students' social origins to their academic achievements. Results of estimating this modes indicate that teachers do not engage in social class discrimination and that teachers' expectations affect not so much what is learned in school as the certification of this learning by the school.
