Talent Matters: Supporting Equity and Michigan's Educators for Pandemic Recovery and Beyond
Bentley, Tabitha; Stone, Riley
Education Trust-Midwest
Educator talent has long been a challenge in Michigan's highest poverty districts and districts serving high percentages of Black and Brown students. These districts have confronted enduring challenges in recruiting, retaining, and compensating highly effective and diverse educators, and this is reflected in outcomes such as teacher turnover rates. The Education Trust-Midwest heard from leaders in historically-underserved districts that face deeply-rooted structural challenges to hear their thoughts and concerns on what Michigan must do to attract, support and retain the teachers they want most in their schools. This brief highlights the perspectives of district leaders working in high-poverty districts in Michigan at the height of the pandemic. These conversations revealed a key theme: Michigan is not doing enough to meet the needs of teachers in high poverty schools and districts, nor enough to meet the needs of district leaders working to attract, retain, and develop them.
