In this webinar, participants heard about a comprehensive, robust statewide coalition that has been working since 2016 to increase the percentage of teachers of color and American Indian teachers in Minnesota which stands at 5% while students of color represent 37% of all students. Working from a five-point platform, the Coalition has garnered bipartisan endorsement in the legislature for its Increase Teachers of Color Act and has succeeded in getting an increase of annual state funding from $4 million to $15 million for a variety of initiatives.
