#TeacherDiversity takes more than recruitment. It starts with listening to the experiences of our teachers.

Education leaders need to do more to retain & support our #LatinoTeachers.

"State leaders & legislators often talk about education being the great equalizer, & pay lots of lip service to the importance of teachers. But if state leaders want to improve educational opportunity for all students — but especially students from underserved communities, who need high-quality schools & the strongest teachers the most — they have to back up that rhetoric with tangible resources, & that starts with funding." -- Rachel Metz

“As states continue to pursue their goals to increase the share of adults that have some form of postsecondary credential, it is imperative that states enact policies, interventions & incentives that will enable more Black students to successfully navigate the traditional educational pathway to degree completion” – Dr. Andrew Nichols & J. Oliver Schak

En 2002, 45.7% de estudiantes latinos universarios cumplieron la licenciatura en 6 años. En este momento, el número ha aumentado a 53.6%. Mientras que celebremos estas ganas, hay que hacer más para cerrar el hueco de 10 puntos porcentuales entre estudiantes latinos y blancos.

In 2015 53.6% of first-time #Latino college students completed a bachelor’s degree in 6 years, up from 45.7% in 2002. While these gains are important there is still more work to be done to close the remaining 10 point #gradrate gap between Latino students & their White peers.
