Access to New York's top teachers still unequal, state report shows
from Chalkbeat New York
Schools serving the largest shares of poor and nonwhite students in New York state are more likely to be staffed with teachers who have no experience, have little expertise in the subjects they teach, and who earned lower ratings than those serving whiter and more affluent students, according to a new report from the state. The familiar socioeconomic and racial disparities are detailed in the state's first comprehensive look at the issue in nine years. In that time, the state has spent nearly $700 million in federal funds, part of which was earmarked to help ensure disadvantaged students have increasing access to high-quality teachers.
