Minority Teacher Recruitment
Goal: Increase the number of minority educators in the state.
- Pass legislation that addresses training for cultural competency in schools, identify minority teaching as a shortage area, and create teaching internships with historically black colleges and those in Puerto Rico
- Create innovative "grow your own" programs that provide a teaching career pipeline for students in high school
- Create innovative public-school-designed and teacher-driven education preparation programs for candidates with bachelor's degrees, without diminishing high standards for teacher licensure and certification
