Having a math teacher who fully expects a student to obtain a college degree boosts that student’s odds of college completion. The study was conducted by American University economist Seth Gershenson. John Gershenson’s new study shows some differences in teacher expectations of math and English teachers. In charter schools, English teachers had lower expectations than math teachers, he found. The study tracked more than 30,000 students who were in the 10th grade in 2002 and 2009.
