Historical Review of Teacher and Student Diversity in an Urban Kentucky School District
Francis, James L.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene College
Drawing on court records, state archival information, and local school district reports, this project examined student diversity and teacher diversity over more than five decades in an urban school district established in 1974 by court mandate. This study especially focused on the impact of a ratio set by the federal court regarding the high school levels in this district. This ratio guided the district's staffing patterns for more than 30 years, but was abandoned in 2007. Teacher diversity remained relatively constant, despite district recruitment and retention efforts, while student diversity increased during this period. Through interviews and surveys of current high school principals, the study offers recommendations for securing faculties more reflective of the ethnic composition of the student population.
