Why Black and Latino Males Donít Go into Teaching and What to Do About It

Posted By: JOHN LOFLIN on November 27, 2020
 

The book, Opportunities and Challenges in Teacher Recruitment and Retention: Teachers' Voices Across the Pipeline, though timely, is still another attempt to make 20th-century strategies work regardng teacher recruitment and retention.

Mentioning "state and national high stakes testing and irrelevant curricular requirements," and the importance of "relationships" and teacher "identity" or even pay are each important.

These traditional attempts to recruit and retain teachers are seen in a new light in, "Why Black and Latino Males Donít Go into Teaching and What to Do About It."

If we want to get and keep teachers, we must not try and reason with them to go into teaching while they are in college or after graduation, or even stay in the field when they go into the classroom.

What is needed is to spend time improving the experience of K-12 students so that these students are compelled to go into teaching.
