6:13 pm
the classroom can be indicative of success, according to tony thurman, california's state superintendent of public instruction. the research has shown us for years that there are benefits to students of color when there's at least just one educator of color on a campus. that is why thurman is backing assembly bill 5, 20 or california diversifying the teacher workforce grant program. ah, $15 million plan to help schools recruit and retain in male teachers of color department of education numbers show that students of color make up 75% of california's student population yet blackmail teachers make up just 1% of that workforce. this demographic. mich. matt can drive in equities in educational out academic outcomes. leo casey is with the albert shanker institute. a study by the foundation found that diversifying public teaching is very slow, which in turn has been hurting students of color with one segment of the population hit especially hard for african american
