Overview of Chapters book
Part I is composed of three chapters that examine workplace relationships and their implications for the recruitment and retention of teachers of color. These chapters present descriptive analyses that examine how the organizational culture of predominantly white schools and the cultural values that African American teachers bring into these schools affect the latter's professional experiences in schools where they are in the minority. The theoretical premise for the findings discussed in these chapters emerges from Cox's (1994) research on group identities. His work was used as a broad overview to examine how workers from phenotype groups define themselves, as well as how other groups view them.
