Bias and Achievement

This research brief by Diane Hughes, Professor of Applied Psychology at the Steinhardt School of Culture, Development, and Education and Co-director of the Center for Research on Culture, Development, and Education at NYU, outlines research that is relevant to a more complete understanding of experiences of racial bias at school among ethnic minority Prekindergarten and early elementary school children (PreK-3rd).

It outlines the potential consequences of those experiences on academic and school behaviors.
