Supporting Educators of Color

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

51% of students in the United States are students of color; just 19% of teachers are teachers of color. Many school districts have set goals to become more diverse, but are not able to retain educators of color once they are hired. Why are school districts setting goals for increasing numbers of educators of color? How many educators of color are currently in your school and how are they supported? What constitutes an equitable school environment for students and teachers? Through hearing testimonials, sharing personal experiences, investigating research, and examining personal strengths and biases, participants will learn specific school practices that support recruitment and retention of educators of color. Participants will leave with tools to assess school practices around building inclusive, equitable school communities and specific action steps for supporting educators of color.
