Identifying Barriers to Recruiting and Retaining a Diverse Teacher Workforce

October 24, 2022

A diverse teacher workforce has the potential to improve outcomes for all students, and especially for students of color. While North Carolina clearly recognizes the importance of increasing diversity in the workforce – and despite national and local efforts from school districts and policy makers – the teaching workforce remains largely white and female, even as the students they serve become increasingly diverse, widening the racial gap between teachers and students.

In exploring solutions to this mismatch, The Hunt Institute is proud to partner with Dr. Kisha N. Daniels, Assistant Professor of the Practice of Education at Duke University on a new policy brief on the importance of a diverse teacher workforce.
