Questions of Race and Culture: How They Relate to the Classroom for African American Students.
Graybill, Susan W.
Clearing House, v70 n6 p311-18 Jul-Aug 1997
Discusses how cultural discontinuity between white teachers and black students influences teachers' perceptions and expectations of students. Notes a disproportionate overrepresentation of black students in mentally retarded or special education classes, and underrepresentation in gifted programs. Argues for more African-American teachers, accommodation of learning styles, and maintaining continuity between home and classroom. (SR)
