Intergroup Differences and Their Impact on African American Teachers.
Mabokela, Reitumetse Obakeng; Madsen, Jean A.
Urban Education, v38 n6 p725-49 Nov 2003
Examined how intergroup differences within suburban schools affected African American teachers' experiences. Organizational culture strongly influenced how whites treated their minority counterparts. Because the majority established norms, minorities were expected to comply with uniform sets of rules and regulations. Intergroup conflict arose among groups of teachers if only one or very few teachers of color worked in the school. Minority teachers often felt pressured to prove their worth. (SM)
