Latinx Students Unlikely To See A Teacher Like Them In Kansas City Area Schools
Study shows that for every 200 Latinx students, there is one Latinx educator.
According to a report from the Latinx Education Collaborative in tandem with the Urban Education Research Center, one percent of K-12 teachers identify as Latinx in the Kansas City area. We talk with those involved about that study and a second report that takes a deeper look at improving the "teacher pipeline" that recruits and retains students to the profession.
