Perceived discrimination is one of the main causes of disparities between privileged and socially disadvantaged groups, and educational outcomes are not an exception to this rule. The current study uses the National Survey of American Life – Adolescents (NSAL-A) data to explore gender differences in the association between perceived discrimination (by teachers) and school performance among African American youth.
