Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships among black student achievement, self-concept, discipline, and the number of black teachers a subject was assigned during grades K-8. The study focused on the characteristics of eighth graders who had attended the same urban school district in the piedmont area of North Carolina since kindergarten. Information for the study included California Achievement Test scores, Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory scores, and the number of black teachers for each of 146 black eighth graders. In addition, suspension data collected by the school district was used as an indicator of overall student behavior.
