Influence of the EMR Label on Initial Expectations of Regular-Classroom Teachers.
Aloia, Gregory F.; MacMillan, Donald L.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v88 n3 p255-62 Nov 1983
The label "educable mentally retarded" differentially influenced elementary teacher (N=1,114) expectations across academic ability, student behavioral potential, ability to work with the child, and general impressions of the child. Data also showed that a child's attractiveness and school-related traits significantly influenced initial expectations of regular class teachers. (Author/CL)
