Influence of Children's Physical Attractiveness on Teacher Expectations.
Kenealy, Pamela; And Others
Journal of Social Psychology, v128 n3 p373-83 Jun 1988
Ratings of the physical attractiveness of 11-to-12-year-old children were obtained, and the association between physical attractiveness and teachers' judgements of these children were examined. Teachers revealed a systematic tendency to rate girls higher than boys, and significant sex differences were observed in teachers' ratings of attractiveness, academic brightness, sociability, and confidence.
