Minority Threat in Schools: Racial Status, Social Context, and Social Control

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Research exploring Blalock’s (1967) theory of minority threat has predominantly explored the social control capabilities of law related agencies, such as the police and courts. However, recently scholars have begun to apply these concepts to social control within schools, as schools remain one of the more important social agencies in the life of adolescents. This literature suggests that minority students are disproportionately punished at rates above their representation in schools. Moreover minority students are punished more in schools where they represent a greater proportion of the population. This paper builds on the past research applying a multilevel framework examining the effects of school and individual level factors on the likelihood of school punishment, using data from approximately 3,000 students from 31 schools nationwide. This paper will explore whether students have a greater probability of punishment in schools that have a larger proportion of minority students and whether minority students are more likely to be punished in schools where there is a greater degree of racial tension.
