Investigated whether the combination of race, class, and gender resulted in extreme expectancy confirmation when applied to black, lower class, male children. Results from studying elementary school children show the areas of race, social class, and gender do have an effect on how one is academically evaluated, with race having the most consistent and strongest effect.
