CPR Faculty Affiliate Cassandra Hart’s work on teacher-student race and academic outcomes featured in the New York Times.  From the article:

“When black children had a black teacher between third and fifth grades, boys were significantly less likely to later drop out of high school, and both boys and girls were more likely to attend college….The effect was strongest for children from low-income families.”
