The current study explores novice, urban-trained teachers’ evaluations of their current schools. The participants were16 teachers from the same private, graduate-level university teacher education program (TEP) in the eastern United States. The findings reveal that these teachers prefer the behaviors, beliefs, and values that they perceive most resemble suburban-ness or middle-class-ness. This study demonstrates how these teachers’ ranking essentially reinforced the dominance of White, middle-class culture, revealing the hidden discourse of class and how the beliefs associated with class are often entangled with race.
