A majority of students entering school this year are minorities, but most teachers are still white
from The Huffington Post
A majority of the public school students heading back to school this September aren't white. But the teachers leading their classrooms are still overwhelmingly so. This year marks a milestone for U.S. public schools in that it is the first time a majority of students will come from minority groups. According to projections from the National Center for Education Statistics, 49.7 percent of students entering public schools this year are white, compared to 50.3 percent of students who identify as black, Hispanic, Asian or another nonwhite ethnicity. Just 10 years ago, in 2004, nearly 60 percent of public school students were white. By 2022, that figure is projected to fall to just 45 percent.
