Classmates' Effects on Black Student Achievement in Public School Classrooms.
Link, Charles R.; Mulligan, James G.
Economics of Education Review, v10 n4 p297-310 1991
Uses a large, national, random sample of elementary school students to determine the effects of classroom racial composition and classmates' ability on African-American students' performance on standardized tests for mathematics and reading. On balance, African-American students do not benefit enough from higher classmate achievement levels to offset the negative effects of having fewer African-American classmates. (23 references) (MLH)
