Report to the State Board of Education on the Status of Minority Classroom Teachers in Tennessee, 2006
Tennessee Department of Education
The school systems of Tennessee are continuing to make efforts to recruit and retain African-American and other minority teachers. As school systems in the state become more and more diverse, these efforts must increase. The number of classroom teachers with 30+ years of experience further emphasizes the accelerated need to establish and implement minority recruitment and retention strategies. The development, implementation, and evaluation of local recruitment and retention plans are needed in order to enhance placement efforts. The state should also explore other methods of exposing students to diversity when minority teachers are not available. The state must continue to encourage, support, and provide assistance as systems explore traditional and new avenues of recruiting and retaining minority teachers in the classroom. Statistical Summary Tables are included. Appended are: (1) Minority Matching Grant Awardee information; and (2) Classroom Teacher Assignments. (Contains 21 tables.)
