NEA, through its current communication and social media platforms, will address the national need to recruit, develop, and retain diverse and culturally responsive community based educators of color (especially males) to help advance the achievement of all students. NEA will use existing programs to pilot a pipeline for male educators (especially those of color) through preK-12 and higher education.

Rationale/Background

Our educators workforce needs to reflect demographically and culturally the students we serve in order to build and develop relationships between students and educators that ensures the highest level of success.
