School achievement of pupils with a non-Western minority background often lags behind that of their peers with a Dutch ethnic background. Bettina de Jong's research investigates two possible explanations for these differences in school adjustment. She focuses on the effects of negative stereotypes on school achievement and how the quality of the teacher-child relationship affects the behavioural adjustment of ethnic minority students in the Netherlands.
