Recording: Reckoning with Race in America’s Classrooms, Mar 7, 2022

America's teaching workforce looks nothing like its student population. This disparity is most prominent for the Latino community, who make up over 26% of the student population but only 9% of all teachers in public schools. This lack of representation hurts Latino students who represent the future of America but often don’t see themselves mirrored in the classroom. This session will explore policies to diversify America’s classrooms, and how Latino leaders can push for educator diversity.
