Kansas City Educator Dashboard
When we think of K-12 schools, many of us picture teachers and principals. In reality, many adults work in schools. These adults play critical roles in supporting student learning from helping students with special needs to coaching teachers to working one-on-one with families. Emerging research shows that increasing the diversity of all adult educators in the building, including teachers, administrators and support staff, can improve outcomes for students of color and students overall (Center for Research on Education, Diversity and Excellence, 2000).
The Kansas City Educator Dashboard sheds light on the demographic characteristics of the educators in our school districts and charter schools.
