The Education Trust and Khan Academy are co-hosting a virtual roundtable on teacher diversity and its importance for student learning on Wednesday, February 16 from 5–6 pm ET. Moderated by Sharif El-Mekki, the CEO of The Center for Black Educator Development, the roundtable will also include speakers from Latinos for Education and the TN Educators of Color Alliance.
Research has shown that teacher diversity helps close the achievement gap for students of color and improves educational outcomes for all students. Through data-driven and research-based topics, this one-hour virtual roundtable for reporters and advocates will cover why a diverse teacher workforce is key to student achievement and how to support recruitment and retention programs for teachers of color.
We hope you can join us for this important discussion. Please register here.
