The need for greater diversity in the teaching workforce
from By: Bambi Majumdar
U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. recently urged parents to help encourage and bring about more diversity in the teaching workforce in order to keep up with the growing student diversity in K-12 schools. King received a lot of flak after his speech despite the student-teacher ratios that support his stance. A new report found major gaps in the teaching workforce pipeline and a severe lack of diversity among teachers at K-12 public schools across the country.
