Abstract

Information obtained from teachers on the characteristics of 310 Dublin children in infant classes in disadvantaged areas was factor analyzed, revealing important scholastic, home background and emotional clusters of measures. Among these measures, emotional and language problems were seen as particularly important. In addition, data concerning teachers' perceptions of disadvantage were obtained, and there was considerable agreement among them as to the relative importance of certain traits related to disadvantage.
