EQUITY MATTERS EP. 2: Teacher Racial Bias
IN THIS EPISODE
Ying Shi and Maria Zhu join to discuss their cutting-edge research on teacher racial & ethnic bias. They find that teachers systematically rate Black and Hispanic students less favorably than White and Asian students, even between students with identical test scores. In addition, the presence of any Asian student in the classroom exacerbates pre-existing teacher biases. The “model minority” stereotype can negatively impact other minority groups despite its positive connotation.
