Branch, Robert M.; Kritsonis, William Allan
Online Submission, Doctoral Forum--National Journal for Publishing and Mentoring Doctoral Student Research v3 n1 2006
Student diversity is significantly different than diversity in the teaching staff. Educational leaders must identify methods to bridge the gap in teacher diversity so that students of all backgrounds see adult role models and images of themselves in the classroom. Recruiting, developing, and retaining qualified minority teachers is an important practice that must be further enhanced for the benefit of all students. The authors discuss the importance of recruitment, development, and retention of minority teachers in public education.
