Studies show that students of color—as well as white students—benefit from having instructors of color. Diversity among Oregon teachers has  increased over the decades, but there’s still a need for ethnically diverse faculty.

With the Black Lives Matter movement causing people to reevaluate systemic racism, KLCC has created a series that examines the successes and failures of Oregon schools with regards to race, and what schools can do to be more inclusive.
