Representation Matters: The Power of Black Educators & Mentors

For many school districts, finding and keeping teachers of color has proved difficult. In Boston, teachers of color make up 39% of all teachers, while students of color make up 86% of the student body. Recently, the district announced hiring the highest percentage of candidates of color in seven years and this year, Black educators comprised of 31% of all teacher and guidance counselor new hires. While progress has been made, there’s still much more work to be done.

Join City Year Boston for a virtual roundtable discussion with Black educators and mentors about power of representation in education and mentorship and its impact on students and young people.
