An Estimate of Race and Gender Role-Model Effects in Teaching High School.
Evans, Mark O.
Journal of Economic Education, v23 n3 p209-17 Sum 1992
Describes an attempt to estimate race and gender role-model effects in high school economics courses. Reports that no evidence of a gender role-model effect was found. Concludes that recruiting minorities into teaching careers will be beneficial because a large role model effect was found for African Americans whose mothers had not graduated from college. (DK)
