Infographic: Navigating The Road to an Effective and Diverse Teacher Workforce With an Integrated Approach

Often education policies use separate and distinct strategies to address shortages and the need for educator diversity. In our forthcoming brief, An Effective Workforce Is a Diverse Workforce: Prioritizing and Integrated Approach to Educator Shortages and Workforce Diversity, we argue that by using an integrated approach that values both the need to address shortages and the need for diversity, education leaders are less likely to overlook systemic barriers or create one-size-fits-all solutions. An integrated approach is more likely to resolve shortages by attracting, recruiting, and retaining diverse, effective teachers for the students who need them the most.
