The Midwest Achievement Gap Research Alliance, in collaboration with the Minority Student Achievement Network (MSAN), is providing a training for district leaders on creating inclusive environments for Black teachers. The goals for the training are:

  • To share research on the importance and challenges of retaining Black teachers.
  • To highlight evidence-based strategies, such as improving school organizational conditions, that can increase retention rates for Black teachers and potentially can improve educational outcomes among Black students.
  • To provide strategies and action steps that district leaders, school leaders, and educators can implement to create inclusive work environments and improve retention rates among Black teachers.
  • To connect research to practice by having school and district leaders discuss relevant policies, programs, and practices to create more inclusive work environments and improve retention rates among Black teachers.
