Trouble Don't Set Like Rain: Minority Status and Black Parents' Educational Decisions
Munn-Joseph, Marlene S.
Journal of School Public Relations, v27 n4 p397-419 Fall 2006
Using grounded theory methodology combined with the interpretive lens of critical race theory, this study examines perceptions of minority status by 2 Black parents who have opted out of the public education system. Through the conceptual lens of stereotype threat, 2 contrasting examples illustrate how the perception of minority status affects parents' construction of perspectives that guide their educational decision making.
