Increasing Educator Diversity

EdAdvance is one of six Regional Educational Service Centers (RESCs) participating in the Increasing Educator Diversity Alliance which assists Connecticut school districts in recruiting, hiring, developing, supporting, and retaining racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse teaching and administrative workforces. As a result of the RESC Increasing Educator Diversity Alliance’s research and program expansion, the following program components have been implemented:

  • Academic, financial, peer-networking, and professional development opportunities that promote an increase in the number of minority teacher graduates from alternate route and traditional certification programs in Connecticut.

  • Pathways to Teaching: Grow your own career development programs that focus on the recruitment and training of minority high school students interested in becoming teachers in Connecticut. Support continues as students progress through college and are accepted into teacher-preparation programs.

  • Visit our RESC Alliance Web site: The site provides information on statewide efforts to eliminate the educational achievement gap between minority students and their non-minority peers.
