Proctor, Sherrie L.; Simpson, Chamane M.; Levin, Jacqueline; Hackimer, Laura
Contemporary School Psychology, v18 n2 p117-126 Jun 2014
Lack of racially, ethnically, and linguistically (REL) diverse school psychologists has been a concern for decades. Recent and rapid increases in student diversity within America's public schools require that school psychology address the longstanding lack of diversity within the field. This article details the demographics of school psychologists and school psychology graduate students. The article also examines the research related to recruitment of REL diverse individuals into the field. Based on an examination of the strengths and limitations of the existing body of knowledge, recommendations for future research and practice related to recruiting REL diverse individuals in school psychology graduate education are presented.
