Although minority representation is frequently studied, few of the efforts analyze whether or not representation makes a difference. Does recruitment of blacks to bureaucratic positions result in policy formulations more responsive to blacks? Using black teachers as the research focus, this study finds that the larger the proportion of black teachers in a school district, the lower the second generation discrimination against black students. This relationship holds even under controls for black resources, black education, black income, and region. 1984, Southern Political Science Association. All rights reserved.
