Need for Teachers of Color not isolated to urban areas, suburban areas have need too

In a follow up to my two previous posts, Why Teachers of Color are Important…it may surprise you! and Why We Need Black Male Teachers in the Classroom, check out this recent Boston Globe article titled, Education’s Changing Face, indicating that suburban Boston school districts are struggling to diversify their teaching forces.

One statistic that stands out from the article is that the percentage of nonwhite students in the state is 33 percent while the share of teachers of color is only 7 percent.

The article reaffirms previous research I cited in Why Teachers of Color are Important…it may surprise you! that teachers of color can help students of color perform better academically.
