Welcome to the Latinx Education Collaborative.
The LEC is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing and retaining the number of quality Latinx education professionals in K-12.
The LEC believes that representation is a key element in creating successful outcomes for all students. Emerging data show that when students are exposed to a diverse teaching staff, educational outcomes improve. 25% of K-12 students across the country identify as Latinx. Only 8% of educators do. The LEC wants to close that gap.
The LEC works on creating and implementing culturally responsive recruitment and retention strategies designed to attract, support, enhance, and retain Latinx education professionals.
