Unequal Access, Unequal Results: Equitable Teacher Distribution in Miami-Dade County Public Schools

This report analyzes the distribution of teachers in Miami-Dade County and examines whether teacher quality varies with socioeconomic factors across the county. The paper is specific to Miami-Dade County, but the issues examined have been identified by the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights as common across the United States. Findings show that Black students are more likely than White students to be taught by first-year teachers or uncertified/unlicensed teachers and those teachers are likely to be paid less.
