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.

For those of you who don't already know, Graduate! Philadelphia works with Comebackers - adults who have some college credit who want to go back to school to complete their degree. In Philadelphia, there are 80,000 adults in this situation and 316,000 in the greater Philadelphia region. Since 2008, we've helped thousands of adults return back to college and have had over 900 adults earn 1045 degrees.
Our topic is how youth who have an adult in their lives who has a college degree are more likely to get to and through both high school and college. As a leader in our City, we want you to share your thoughts on this important issue. Let's see how we can work together to make sure every child can succeed.
