Minority Teacher Recruitment

Minority Teacher Recruitment

The Minority Teacher Recruiting Program is a product of the combined efforts of approximately 25 school districts in Greater Hartford. It is an integral part of an overall effort to increase the numbers of African American, Hispanic/ Latino, Native American, and Asian American teachers and administrators in the region's public schools. Program services assist schools to recruit, hire and retain a diverse teaching and administrative staff that more closely represents the diversity of the student population

Although minority students account for over a third of Connecticut's public school students, only 7 percent of the state's teachers and 2 percent of the administrators in Connecticut's public schools are minorities

Forty percent of Connecticut public school students will never have a teacher who is not white. It is important that all children have access to positive role models from a variety of backgrounds in order to be successful in an increasingly global society

The lack of minority representation in the educational field is a matter of concern for urban, suburban and rural school districts

The Minority Teacher Recruiting Program is an integral part of the effort to eliminate the educational achievement gap between minority students and their non-minority peers
