Teacher Demographics in Florida's Public Schools, Fall 2012. Education Information & Accountability Services. Data Report. Series 2013-21D
Florida Department of Education
This data report shows the racial profile of Florida's public school teachers, and discusses short and long-term trends, distribution by race/ethnicity and length of service, and distribution by racial/ethnic and instructional categories. In the 2012-13 school year, Florida had 171,868 teachers. Each of Florida's six largest school districts has a higher percentage of minority students than the state as a whole, but only four of them have a higher percentage of minority teachers than the state as a whole. Combined, these six districts make up nearly half (48.41%) of the state's public school membership. Gadsden and Miami-Dade counties, which have the highest minority student representations (96.63% and 91.96%, respectively), are the only Florida districts in which there are more minority teachers (78.62% and 73.73%, respectively) than white teachers.
