SCHOOLS LOOK TO ADVANCE RACIAL EQUITY WITH A FOCUS ON TEACHERS [Wall Street Journal]

 

Brooke Brown has taught English language arts and ethnic studies in Tacoma, Wash., for the past 14 years. In September, the state named her 2021 Washington Teacher of the Year.

Ms. Brown is also a biracial Black woman and a participant in a new program in her region aimed at retaining teachers of color, in a state where 88% of teachers in 2019 were white, according to a state agency.

The program, the Educators of Color Leadership Community, “has been instrumental in me not just finding my voice as an educator and as a woman of color, but also having the agency to learn how to advocate for my voice,” she says.
