Cooper, Harris; Moore, Conswella J.
Journal of Experimental Education, v63 n3 p231-48 Spr 1995
In 2 studies, the academic expectations of teachers (n=27 to 29 and n=30) for students differing by racial group, gender, socioeconomic status (SES), parental structure, and parenthood were studied. SES and teenage motherhood were the strongest predictors of lower expectations. Higher expectations were reported for middle-class students. (SLD)
