A study in 2013 revealed that more than 48% of school-aged children were African-American or Latinx, but just 17% of their teachers, 6% of their superintendents and 11% of their school board members look like them. This dearth of diverse leadership impacts decisions that affect our kids and our communities.
Why aren’t there more leaders of color?
Some would say because we don’t have the education or skills. Other would point to a lack of ambition.
A recent report by Race to Lead does not support that.
