Teacher Expectations Reflect Racial Biases – Johns Hopkins 

Download PDF

This conclusive study explores how teacher expectations reflect racial biases; It suggests that low expectations adversely affect the performance of students, particularly disadvantaged ones who lack access to role models who could counteract a teacher’s low expectations. The study also speaks to how the implicit and explicit biases referenced also translate into long term student outcomes in not only educational attainment, but also labor market success and criminal justice interaction.
