The Long-Run Impacts of Same-Race Teachers

Abstract

"This paper presents findings from an analysis using student-level data over ten years to investigate the long-term impact of students having teachers of the same race in elementary grades. Findings indicate that having a black teacher in grades 3-5 significantly reduces the likelihood of black male students, particularly those most economically disadvantaged, of dropping out of high school, and increases the likelihood that low-income black male and female students aspire to attend four-year colleges."
