New Research Video Recap
Rookie Mistakes: The Interplay of Teacher
Experience and Racial Representation

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 18, 2019—A new article published in Educational Researcher, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), found that while the expectations gap between non-black and black teachers regarding black students’ academic potential persists regardless of experience, the gap is much larger among first year teachers.

Study authors Katie Vinopal (The Ohio State University) and Stephen B. Holt (University at Albany, State University of New York) recently discussed the findings and implications of this new study with AERA in a video.

 

"Teachers are likely to allocate their time, attention, and effort toward students they view as having more potential," said Katie Vinopal. "If teachers have lower expectations for their black students, this is likely to shape the way teachers behave toward those students, which will shape the way black students experience education and their relationship with learning in the long-run."

"We think the next wave of research around teacher bias is going to be built around identifying the educational and pre-service training practices that best prepares teachers for interacting with diverse students," said Stephen B. Holt. "We hope that in the next wave of research, policy makers, practitioners, and researchers will all cooperate in identifying the pre-service training programs that work best."
