Article: How Discrimination Shapes Parent-Teacher Communication

Dr. Hua-Yu Sebastian Cherng

This article from The Atlantic discusses Dr. Cherng’s research on teachers’ communication practices with families.

“Relying on a sample of about 10,000 predominantly public high-school sophomores, their parents, and teachers from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002—a nationwide sampling conducted by the U.S. Department of Education—Cherng’s statistical analysis found sharp contrasts in how math and English teachers communicate with parents from different racial, ethnic, and immigrant backgrounds, reflecting many existing stereotypes of black, Latino, and Asian American students.”
