Expectation Theory: Everything You Need to Know

This occurs when a teacher lowers their expectation of a student’s performance because of the racial group the student belongs to. When a teacher has lower expectations from a student, it affects the manner in which the teacher interacts with the student. Their teaching methods and the level to which they support and encourage students they expect little from is usually in line with their expectation of the student.

So due to no fault of their own, students who have been unfairly labeled as not worth paying attention to, and dismissed by their teachers before they are given a chance to express themselves then end up actually performing poorly.
