Study: Black Students With Black Teachers Have Lower Rates of Teen Pregnancy
Results: An increase of African-American teachers resulted in a decrease in African-American teen pregnancy. The results were nonlinear, though, meaning that at a certain threshold of representation, the teen pregnancy rate dropped significantly. A 10 percent increase in the representation of African-American teachers would result in approximately six fewer African-American teen pregnancies in a district, the study reads. However, once a district reaches a threshold level of 2029 percent African-American teachers, we observe a significant decrease in African- American teen pregnancy rates (18.8 fewer pregnancies per 1,000). Implications: The idea is that the presence of role models can lead to positive benefits for the people who identify with them. The fact that increased African-American representation among teachers is linked with reduced African-American teen pregnancy rates is especially significant when you consider that, according to the study, those rates are higher for African Americans than any other group, even when you control for socioeconomic status. The study found that the percentage of white teachers did not affect that pregnancy rate among white teens.
