Insights on Diversifying the Educator Workforce: A Data Tool for Practitioners
Use this free, user-friendly tool to identify and visualize diversity gaps across the entire educator career continuum, from “future teachers” graduating from high school and entering preparation programs, to preservice teachers entering the educator workforce, and growing and developing into experienced classroom instructors.
State education agencies, educator preparation programs (EPPs), regional education agencies, and districts can use the data tool to do the following:
- Reveal insights about the diversity of the educator workforce at the state, district, school, or EPP level.
- Identify the main drivers behind the existing disparities within the educator workforce.
- Pinpoint crucial points across the educator career continuum where implementing carefully selected strategies can help diversify the educator workforce and improve equitable access.
Supports for Using the Data Tool
Request technical assistance support to receive a one-on-one consultation with GTL Center experts to learn more about how your state, district, or EPP can create a more diverse teacher pipeline. After completing the technical assistance request form, GTL staff will reach out to help your team use the data tool and your state’s mentoring and induction priorities.
