Minority Teachers in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. A Report to the 1992 Kentucky General Assembly from the Education Professional Standards Board.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.
This report presents minority population and minority teacher and student data for Kentucky. The data reveal that while Kentucky has a minority population of approximately 8 percent, in 1990-1991 more than one-half of the school districts in the state had 1 percent or less nonwhite professional staff. The report includes five recommendations to increase the pool of minority teachers in the state: employ a coordinator and support staff for state teacher recruitment and minority coordination; offer alternative certification programs to attract individuals from other career areas into the teaching profession; identify and support minority students with college potential; review teacher certification test data for impact on minority groups; and provide funds to local school districts for scholarships for minorities. Projected cost of funding each of these recommendations is included. Statistical data are presented on application, admission, and reason for admission denials (by ethnic group) to Kentucky teacher education programs. (IAH)
