Pathways to Teaching: Teacher Diversity and Testing in Washington State

To increase the diversity of the state’s teacher workforce, the Washington Professional Educator Standards Board and the Teacher Testing Barriers Workgroup are creating practices and policies to support and retain candidates of color along the teacher preparation and career pathway. These stakeholders asked the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Northwest to study where teacher candidates, especially candidates of color, are most likely to drop out or leave the pathway. This infographic highlights findings from the REL Northwest study, which examined the percentage of candidates who continued at each step among all candidates who attempted any step on the pathway between 2010 and 2019.
