Study of American Kindergarten by Ray Rist (1970)

  • Study of American kindergarten
  • Teacher used info about children’s home background & appearance to place them separate groups seating them each on separate tables
  • Tigers (fast learners) tended to be middle-class & neat & clean appearance
  • Clowns & cardinals (less able) more likely to be working-class
  • Clowns & cardinals seated further away from teacher, lower level books to read & fewer opportunities to demonstrate their abilities
