5 p. 
Summary

The author submitted that negative preconceptions often hinder the effectiveness of teachers and administrators in culturally depressed areas. Most disadvantaged children are not special discipline problems, nor exceptionally hostile or unresponsive. They and their parents have high, even unrealistic, educational aspirations. Teachers should encourage the self-discipline which leads to academic success, which, in turn, would break the cycle of self-fulfilling prophecies of failures. This article was published in "Journal of secondary education," volume 40, number 3, March 1965. (nc)
