If it was researched in the US then maybe it was about racism? There are stereotypes saying that black people are less smart than white people and that asian children study a lot. Maybe the teachers were judging children based on if their names sounded white or not and based on this they decided how much attention they would dedicate to a child. So if they thought that black children won’t do as good as others at school they might be paying less attention to them.
I didn’t read about this study so I’m just guesing
