Superville, D. R. (2019, August 01). Many White Principals Feel Ill-Equipped to Support Students of Color, Poor Children. Retrieved August 1, 2019.

The percentage of white principles that feel their training did not fully equip them to support black, latino, and low income students is higher than non-white principles. While educator workforce doesn’t reflect student diversity, it can greatly impact the success of its students. Having one black teacher by the third grade can increase a students chance of going to college by 13% and that number increases to 32% if that student has two black teachers by grade three.
