Frustrations of an African-American Parent: A Personal and Professional Account.
Boutte, Gloria S.
Phi Delta Kappan, v73 n10 p786-88 Jun 1992
Describes an African-American parent's efforts to ensure that her daughter be treated fairly in a second grade classroom. Because some teachers mistakenly believe that African-American children are not capable of performing well in the classroom, these teachers may inadvertently convey lower expectations and damage African-American students' motivation and self-esteem.
