Goals, Grades, Fears, and Peers. Introductory Essay for Special Issues on the Effects of School and Classroom Racial and SES Composition on Educational Outcomes


by Roslyn Arlin Mickelson — 2010

In this essay, Roslyn Arlin Mickelson introduces the set of three special issues about the effects of school and classroom composition on educational outcomes. The 22 articles in the set report new research on the relationship of racial and socioeconomic composition to math and science outcomes (Vol. 112, No. 4); to verbal achievement, discipline, and high school graduation (Vol. 112, No. 5); and to intergroup relations and adult life course trajectories (Vol. 112, No. 6). She suggests why the findings have implications for public policy and educational practice.
