Race/ethnicity and school prestige
Racial segregation continues to be a pressing issue in US society, exacerbating racial inequality. Indeed, organizations that are more prestigious generally have a lower representation of underrepresented ethnic minorities (i.e., Black, Hispanic, or Native American members). This begs the question if the ethnic makeup of the school influences the perceptions of the school's prestige and reputability. If so, racial inequality could be sustained simply due to perceivers ascribing more status to schools that have a greater proportion of students from higher status ethnic groups.
