Welcome to the Latinx Education Collaborative.

The LEC is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization dedicated to increase and retaining the number of Latinx education professionals in K-12.


The LEC believes that representation is a key element in creating successful outcomes for all students. Data show that when students are exposed to a diverse teaching staff, educational outcomes improve. Roughly 25% of incoming kindergartners 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 recruitment and retention strategies designed to attract, support, enhance, and retain Latinx education professionals.
