Promoting Teacher Diversity

May 23, 2019

“This week, two different coalitions sent letters to the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate education committees asking them to keep educator diversity in mind when considering legislation,” reports Andrew Ujifusa for Education Week. In one of these missives, the American Association of Educators’ “points out that 15 states are using teacher diversity in some way in their accountability plans for the Every Student Succeeds Act,” and that “teacher groups, as well as community and nonprofit groups, should focus on diversifying the teacher workforce and supporting teachers of color.”
