Review of my own and other evidence on SFPs, bias, and accuracy.  Provides evidence of some of the most powerful self-fulfilling prophecies ever found in social psychology. But it also provides some of the clearest evidence that teachers' perceptions of differences between students from different demographic groups are highly accurate, and that, sometimes, relying on stereotypes can increase rather than reduce the accuracy of person perception judgments (see The Unbearable Accuracy of Stereotypes for more info on this topic).
