AbstractThis article provides an overview of the causal relationship between ethnicity and educational achievement. It sets educational achievement as a process in which culture is transmitted differentially and results in inequalities across ethnic and racial groups. This article summarizes key theoretical paradigms including genetic intelligence, cultural characteristics within a particular ethnic or racial community and social forces and structural attributes in students' school and classroom experiences, and most significant empirical research in each paradigm.
