Constance A. Lindsay, Ph.D. will give a talk on her forthcoming book project, Teacher Diversity and Student Success: Why Racial Representation Matters in the Classroom, at noon on Thursday, Nov. 19, online.
About the Talk
In this talk, Lindsay will cover three broad topics. She will cover evidence on the positive impact of having racially matched and the implications of that evidence for students of color. She will detail the ways that history and policy have worked together to create an educator workforce that is overwhelmingly white and female. Finally, she will make the strong case that teacher diversity is teacher quality.
The talk will end with suggestions and next steps for a broad range of stakeholders and policymakers in education.
A link for the event will be sent out prior to Thursday, Nov. 19.
