Diversity in the STEM Teaching Workforce

 

The Smithsonian Science Education Center in collaboration with Shell Oil Company is working with a Steering Committee of experts on minority participation in teaching careers. The Steering Committee is composed of education thought leaders, including experts from PK-12 and postsecondary education, Minority-Serving Institutions, and nonprofits. Together we will give schools and districts the tools to attract and retain STEM teachers from underrepresented groups resulting in 30,000 new and existing teachers by 2030.
