Abstract:The findings from this study indicated that there are perceptions of teacher care specific to low-income African American students at Setting High School that have the potential to influence their academic achievement. Themes identified as a result of a cross-case analysis were: (a) teachers' have low expectations of African American students' intelligence; (b) teachers' have a low commitment to African American students' success; (c) students react to their low perceptions of teacher care; and (d) students who act like they don't care about their schoolwork receive less teacher care. It is recommended that school improvement efforts at Setting High School incorporate attention to teacher care.
