Revisiting the Teacher Selectivity and Diversity Dilemma

From the Center for American Progress

For the past three decades, two concerns have dominated the national conversation about the teaching workforce: diversity and talent. The teaching profession is not as racially diverse or selective as it needs to be, yet calls for making the selection process more rigorous have often been met with skepticism. Many educators, policymakers, and other stakeholders worry that increasing selectivity may lead to a less racially diverse teacher workforce. So, are the two goals compatible?

At this event, the Center for American Progress will discuss two new papers on this topic. The first piece—“Revisiting the Persistent Teacher Diversity Problem”—ranks states on the percentage-point difference between teachers of color and students of color. The authors find that the percentage of nonwhite students has continued to increase, while the percentage of diverse teachers has remained stagnant or has fallen.
