Black kids are more likely to be seen as dumber/more disruptive and placed in lower streams and accept the label, underachieving - refuted by a study on a group of black London schoolgirls who were determined to prove the labels wrong and succeed to show they could
Chinese kids more likely to be higher achievers due to the way they have been brought up - strong work ethic, smaller families
Romani-travellers more likely to underachieve as going around multiple spots so more stilted education
Pakistani/Indian kids can go either way - pressure from large family can help, but little space due to large family can hinder

Hope this helps! This is what I can remember!

Good sociologists are Gillborn and Youdell - teacher racism, Fuller was the black girls study, Sewell is very important, Troyna and Williams.
