Minority Teacher Recruitment

Minority Teacher Recruitment

Improve upon 2018 legislation promoting strategies for recruitment and retention of minority teachers.

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
