There are other challenges faced by educators today, such as more students living in poverty, more ELL students, changes in curriculum and environmental changes. While our students have this experience, the experiences of those who stand before them in classrooms, are different and their faces are predominately white. As the K-12 enrollment has become a representation of race and ethnicity in our country, the face of the classroom teacher remains predominantly white.

Second, the flow of immigration in motion since the mid-1960s has made the children of the U.S. the most racially and ethnically diverse age group.
At first glance, it’s clear that white people have a higher percentage of home ownership than any other race.
