Dr. Ana Maria Villegas, a professor in the Department of Secondary and Special Education, will present a webinar for Education Week.
Wanted: A More Diverse Teaching Force
The webinar takes place December 18th at 2:00 pm E.T.
Register for the webinar here.
Districts have made efforts in trying to recruit a teaching force that mirrors the country’s increasingly diverse K-12 student population. Despite some successes, a “diversity gap” remains between students and teachers. In this webinar, a scholar and a practitioner will outline the research on the minority-teacher population, the challenges faced in the recruitment and retention of such candidates, and what one district program has done to improve working conditions and professional development for teachers of color.
