School Performance, Status Relations, and the Structure of Sentiment: Bringing the Teacher Back In.
Alexander, Karl L; And Others
American Sociological Review, v52 n5 p665-82 Oct 1987
Teachers' social origins influence their reactions to students. Low-status and minority students experience difficulties in the classrooms of high-status teachers. Outcomes of these relationships are that the students are seen as less mature and less is expected of them. A model of teacher-pupil background congruence is proposed. (Author/VM)
