Time: 1:30-3:00 ET

Location: Virtual

Registration Link:

Description: A growing body of research is documenting that all students—and students of color in particular—benefit from being taught by teachers of color. As student populations across the country become increasingly diverse and many districts are comprised by a majority of students of color, school systems are striving to increase the diversity of the educator workforce. However, strategies for recruiting, hiring, and retaining a diverse educator workforce remain untested. This event provides an opportunity to learn from one state, and several districts within that state, about their efforts to increase the diversity of the educator workforce.

Partnership or Research Alliance: Teacher Preparation Research Alliance

Audience: This webinar is intended for state and district leaders in the Northeast & Islands region and nationally and members of the REL Northeast & Islands Teacher Preparation Research Alliance.
