Without and within: The Implications of Employment and Ethnocultural Equity Policies for Internationally Educated Teachers
Schmidt, Clea; Block, Lee Anne
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n100 Feb 2010
Analyzing school division employment policies from six Winnipeg school divisions and the Manitoba K-12 Action Plan for Ethnocultural Equity (MECY, 2006), we discuss implications for the integration of internationally educated teachers in K-12 schools. Findings suggest that the policies exhibit several major limitations in advancing IET integration: lack of equity and IET-specific content in the case of most divisional policies and lack of stakeholder buy-in and implementation strategies in the case of the ethnocultural equity policy. Subsequent recommendations use the construct of interest convergence from critical race theory to advocate for educational policymaking and implementation that prioritize a more diverse teaching force. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
