Purpose Career Fair

Held every year in February, our one-day annual fair gives current and prospective Black male educators opportunities to get guidance and resume feedback from career advisors, participate in mock interviews, and meet with employers of more than 25 District, charter and parochial schools. 

We cast our net as wide as possible, reaching out to experienced Black male educators looking for a new challenge, college students weighing career paths, and those already working in other fields seeking more meaning from their work. We offer them all an opportunity to come and talk through options, meet with mentors, and interview directly with people ready to hire.

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.
