White Hegemony of Education Schools

It turns out that Education Schools may not have caught up with diversity. “The teaching workforce in the United States remains predominantly white, even as the student body grows increasingly diverse,” according to the Urban Institute. “In an earlier look at teacher diversity, we examined where potential teachers of color fall out of the teaching pipeline and found that the number of teachers of color is constrained by the limited number of diverse college graduates.”

“But at the same time, we found that even among those who do complete college, black, Hispanic, and Asian graduates earned teaching degrees at lower rates than white graduates.”
