Today, I’m thrilled to announce a new study, “Unrealized Impact.” But before we discuss that, I have to go back in time. A year ago, I had an idea for a project. I wanted to see comprehensive data on the state of diversity in education. Sure, there was a lot of talk about the need for greater diversity…and I experienced it first hand in every educational setting. Whether walking into a school, attending a conference or partnering with a nonprofit, the lack of diversity was hard to miss. I knew it anecdotally, but I didn’t have the data.
The percent of Black and Latino leaders in education, when compared to the percent of Black and Latino students in the nation’s schools remains unbalanced. This is especially troubling as the percent of children of color served by our public school system continues to climb.
