Panel discusses diversifying the teacher workforce

Local

The New York State United Teachers held a panel discussion Saturday about diversifying the teaching workforce.

Officials say that Hispanic, Latino and African-American educators make up less than 16 percent of teachers statewide, while students of the same groups make up 43 percent of the student population.

NYSUT has launched the Take a Look at Teaching Initiative to find ways to address this disparity and elevate the teaching profession as a whole.
