Why the Decline in Minority Teachers? Preparing More Minority Teachers. Regional Spotlight. News of Education in SREB States.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The gap between the number of minority teachers and the proportion of minority students enrolled in elementary and secondary schools in Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) states continues to widen. This publication discusses the impact of historically black institutions on the supply of minority teachers and the actions taken by SREB states to increase the number of minority teachers. The problem is examined in the light of the following factors: (1) the overall minority undergraduate enrollment and degrees awarded; (2) opportunities for careers in other fields; and (3) the effects of standardized testing for teacher certification. Strategies to increase the number of minority teachers are suggested. (JD)
