Title:Are teachers prepared for racially diverse schools? Teachers describe their preparation, resources, and practices for racially diverse schools
Source:http://www.civilrightsproject.ucla.edu/research...
Date:2008
Organization:The Civil Rights Project
Short Description:Given the changing racial demographics of the nation’s schools and the primary role of teachers in shaping the education of their students, this report takes advantage of a unique opportunity to ask a broad sample of more than 1,000 of the country’s educators about subjects that are rarely studied in national surveys.
Annotation:Given the changing racial demographics of the nation’s schools and the primary role of teachers in shaping the education of their students, this report takes advantage of a unique opportunity to ask a broad sample of more than 1,000 of the country’s educators about subjects that are rarely studied in national surveys. The research was guided by several questions, including: • What kind of preparation do teachers have for diversity? • What kind of practices and resources do teachers have for teaching about diversity or teaching in diverse settings? • How do educational policies aid or inhibit teaching in diverse classrooms? The answers to these questions should inform future curriculum development in schools of teacher education, as well as professional development opportunities for teachers already in the classroom.
