Studies show that all students benefit from learning from a diverse group of teachers. However, while 53% of public school students are students of color, public schools have about 20% teachers of color, 20% principals of color, and 7% superintendents of color.
In this powerful webinar, The Hunt Institute, Teach Plus, and The Education Trust convened panelists Dr. Nancy Gutiérrez of The Leadership Academy, Dr. Travis Bristol of UC Berkeley, Dr. Faiza Jamil of Clemson University, and Denise Forte of The Education Trust to discuss critical steps schools, districts and states can take to recruit and retain teachers of color. Among other things, Dr. Gutiérrez emphasizes diversifying the education leadership pipeline as an essential step, and offers guidance on how to do that.
